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

The bouquet is blackberry, black currant, roasted coffee, vanilla and exotic spice aromas. The flavor is rich black cherry and currant, licorice, mineral and expresso flavors; superb body and complexity coupled with balanced ripeness and fresh acidity; polished but firm tannins, layered richness and a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The brilliant 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Wight Vineyard (which is not produced in every vintage) is denser than the regular bottling, although the color is a similar opaque ruby/purple. The wine exhibits more licorice, smoke, and black currant notes interwoven with high quality, smoky, but subtle toasty oak. A wine of tremendous purity, full body, voluptuous texture, heady levels of glycerin, and a 40+ second finish, this beauty can be drunk early in life or cellared for 15 years."
