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: 13.5%

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

This wine is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Frac. All of which come from Washington's Ciel du Cheval Vineyard.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm, focused and vibrant, showing cherry, red currant, tobacco and mineral flavors, with a touch of espresso hovering over the long, expressive finish. The tannins have presence, but they're not overwhelming. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2013 through 2019. 497 cases made."
