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.

Alcohol By Volume: 15.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Shiraz and 2% Petit Verdot.

This delicious, crowd pleasing Cabernet is packed with lip smacking flavors of blackcurrant, black cherry, and plum with subtle hints of dark chocolate and smoke. Perfect for parties and for everyday sipping, this tasty bargain is a home run with grilled meats, pizza, and hearty pasta dishes.

This review is for the 08 vintage Excelsior. The wine has a deep color that draws you in. scent of back currant, plum, cherry, and slight tobacco. This wine has soft tannins and, a smooth finish. I think for the money, this is a great wine. That's why I decided to give this wine four stars.

This is a very tasty red with lots of fruit and soft tannins. For the price, it's hard to beat. We had it with meatloaf and even through some dark chocolate cupcakes!

At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
