Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The blend's predominant component of fruit from the Central Coast was harvested in excellent condition. To provide more softness and highlight the Central Coast fruit character, we blended a smooth, lush-tannin lot from the Monterey County. All fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks. The lot from Monterey was aged for 6 months in American Oak.

Tasting Notes:
A delicious and velvety wine, soft and dry with rich flavors of black cherries, dark chocolate and raspberry. Delightful with hearty meat dishes, hamburgers, pasta, pizza and cheeses.

This is the first time I tasted this wine and it's fruity yet mellow. There is not one flavor that over powers the other. This is a nice wine to sip on after a day's work.

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
