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.

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

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Shiraz, 16% Merlot.

The wine is deep garnet with a fruit driven aroma of plums and black cherries. This is complemented by hints of tobacco and cedar. The palate contains black cherry and plum flavors with hints of vanilla.

Style: Earthy & Spicy
Full bodied, tasty, touch of earthiness. A very satisfying sipping experience that should make Ernie Els proud.

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
