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

Alluring spicy aromas of raspberry, vanilla, nutmeg and white pepper. Nicely balanced on the palate, good fruit concentration and acidity. The wine exhibits a beautiful lingering finish.

This wine is an excellent compliment to red-sauce pasta dishes, grilled beef and roasted chicken with Mediterranean herbs.

Style: Smooth & Supple
Likable wine. Fruit forward, light in style, perhaps a bit thin in mid-palate. Great for $10.
