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: 14.0%

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

Light garnet color. Bright and fruity with a jammy nose. A delightful wine that combines the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah with the austerity of Sangiovese. Balanced, almost musical, its a pleasure to drink from an early age and also has an aging potential of 5-8 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Bursting with pure, sweet blackberry, black cherry and spice flavors, this is not overoaked, offering a vibrant structure, with firm tannins on the finish and nice length. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2016"
90 Points

"Medium-deep red. Complex, scented nose offers redcurrant, plum, mint and oregano. Juicy, silky and sweet, with highly nuanced flavors of ripe yet fresh red and dark berries complicated by aromatic herbs and flowers. Not hugely dense but wonderfully expressive, showing lots of mouthwatering acidity on the long, fresh finish. Not the last word in complexity either, but so much fun to drink that I found it hard to put the glass down. This merits 90 points on its yummy factor alone."
