Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

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

2010 Profile is a dark, brooding wine with intense aromas of cassis, blackberry, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, smoke and cedar. It is very dense in the mouth with ripe, round tannins, and it finishes with lingering notes of black cherry, grilled herbs and violets. This wine must be decanted in its youth, and with proper cellaring it will age for 15-20 years and beyond.

Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"The dense ruby/purple-hued 2010 Proprietary Red Profile (92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot) displays a glorious bouquet of sweet blueberry liqueur intermixed with cassis, acacia flowers and a touch of oak. Deep, licorice-infused cassis, white chocolate and espresso roast flavors emerge from this complex, full-bodied, opulent, fleshy 2010. Its length, sweet tannins and overall intensity of flavors suggest it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years."
93 Points

"A smooth, rich and seamless effort, with tannins building around a seductive mix of dark berry, currant, loamy earth and tobacco. Flexes tannic strength on the finish."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
