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

Crozes Hermitage is the largest of the appellations of the Northern Rhône, comprising just over 2500 acres planted to Syrah for red wine and Marsanne and Roussanne for white. The vineyards are largely on the plain, producing reasonably priced wines, but there are some excellent hillside vineyards which provide concentrated, long-lived wines. In general, the red wines have forthright Syrah flavors, spicy and persistent, with satisfying vigor and intensity of flavor in an appealingly rustic style.

Critical Acclaim

"This starts out lush and black, a seductive syrah with floral notes on its plummy fruit. Then the ferrous tannins creep up, reddening the fruit and imbuing it with a steadfast firmness. It finishes rich and earthy... Best Buy."
93 Points

"Dark ruby. A highly fragrant bouquet displays cherry, dark berries and an exotic pit fruit quality. Juicy, focused and mineral-driven, offering intense bitter cherry and fruitcake flavors and firm acidity on the back end. Becomes spicier with air and finishes on a sappy dark berry note, with very good, peppery persistence."

He made wine for over 67 vintages and, at the beginning of his...
