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: 14.5%

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

92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, .5% Cabernet Franc, .5% Malbec.
Grand Reserve is a masterful blend of our mountain, ridge, hillside and benchland grapes grown along California's cool coastal appellations. We hand select grapes from our best estate vineyards and then monitor, taste and hand-hold each individual lot throughout the winemaking process. Each lot is kept separate, barrel-aged and handcrafted —boutique winery style. Our winemakers have an unmatched palate of flavors, toast levels and terroir nuances from which they masterfully blend these exemplary rich, deep and complex wines.

This Cabernet has distinct flavors of black currant, blackberry, blueberry and cassis with enticing aromas of mocha and nutmeg. Notes of smoke, cedar and tobacco leaf round out the lingering finish.
—Randy Ullom, Winemaster.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. Dense creme de cassis notes intermixed with fruitcake, coffee bean, and tobacco leaf are found in this fat, fleshy wine, which displays excellent purity, density, and richness. It should drink well for 15 or more years.
90-93 points."
93 Points

"Serious Cabernet, rich and complex and full bodied, made from Knights Valley and Alexander Valley fruit, with a few grapes from Atlas Peak and Mount Veeder. Dense and tannic now, but high toned, with waves of black currants, black cherries and oak. A good price for a Cabernet of this quality. Drink now–2012."
91 Points

"Fresh cherry flavors fill this wine with ample fruit, soft and plush in the middle, juicy in the end. It’s a finely made cabernet with a gentle structure holding all the elements in place. For flank steak."

Sorry about the multiple entries for this wine. On the wine itself. This wine was a pleasant find. It opens well on the nose, with deep cassis and spice and a hint of mocha. The body has sumptuous dark fruit and is nicely wrapped in smooth grape skin tannins and subtle balanced oak tannins. The mouthfeel is plushly structured and smooth with a lingering finish. Not quite a reserve Cakebread, but equally enjoyable and an absolute steal for the price.

This is an excellent wine now (if you give it about an hour to breathe first) and should hold and develop well for perhaps the next ten years. Dry, dusty, fruity, with a smooth lingering finish. Not a fruit bomb, but a solid Cabernet. Highly recommend. Was excellent with a medium rare beef tenderloin.

I was suggested this wine by some friends at work. I have been going bolder with my taste, and I found this to be a great Cabernet for the price. I enjoyed this wine with a montreal style steak, and found it to be delightful, bold, and full.

Just removing the cork was pleasant, nosing the glass and taking that first sip was a sensual experience.

Back in 1974, Jess Jackson saw in the fine vineyards of California's cool coastal regions fruit with a variety of outstanding flavors. What if there was a way to produce from this abundance, a single outstanding cuvee that offered both quality and value? The result, first released in 1983, was Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay, a rich, round and flavorful wine, made with hand-crafted...

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
