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: 13.0%

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

Intense and rich on notes of wild fruit. The mouth is complex with soft tannins. This wine is powerful and has a distinctive elegance to it. To drink straight away or in the next 3 years.

Critical Acclaim

"This sleek and alluring red delivers mouthwatering minerality from the start, cutting through the core of crushed fig, plum and blackberry fruit. The long, black olive-tinged finish brings you back for more. Drink now through 2016."
92 Points

"Vivid ruby. Spice-accented red and dark berry aromas, with deeper notes of licorice and dark chocolate. Energetic black raspberry and cherry flavors stain the palate, offering a suave blend of richness and bright minerality. Becomes more floral with air and finishes on a smoky note, with resonating spiciness."
