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

Composition: Mourvedre 58%; Shiraz 24%; Grenache 18%

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Intensely perfumed bouquet of spicy red berries, flowers and minerals. Tangy and sharply focused, offering juicy raspberry and cherry flavors, with fine-grained tannins providing shape and grip. A fresh, open-knit wine that is all about sweet fruit right now. Finishes with excellent cut and persistence."

This wine was delicious. It is a big wine, bold, yes, but also smoky and quite mellow.
