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

Winemaker's Notes

This is a classic, spicy, peppery Shiraz, with layers of firm, ripe tannins and bound with abundant juicy, fruit. Our challenge each vintage is to accomplish balance; not easy in our sunny climate. This Shiraz has power and restraint, backbone and fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Shiraz was aged in French and American oak, 40% new. Purple-colored and intensely fragrant, it offers up notes of toasty oak, wood smoke, meat, pencil lead, and blueberry compote. Smooth-textured, already complex, and ripe, this succulent effort will continue to blossom for several more years. It will be at its best from 2011 to 2020. "

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
