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: 13.5%

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

A succulent blend of 48% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 3% Zinfandel and 6% Mixed Blacks (Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Alicante, Malbec), RED is lush with succulent ripe red fruit flavors and spicy aromas. Full-bodied and versatile, RED pairs with a variety of foods for any occasion.

Critical Acclaim

"Refined and easy to drink, with red currant and toasty dill aromas and sleek cherry, bittersweet chocolate and spice flavors. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel. Drink now through 2012. 60,000 cases made."

I don't know about you but I am always looking for a nice full bodied red wine I can enjoy when I get home from work but I don't want break the bank. This is it folks, best value I have found in a long, long time and it is from Sonoma County, not some south american country. Something that is also fun about this wine, they have 12 different labels. The red splashes on the label are diffierent - 12 in all. I have been saving my bottles but have yet to get all 12 different ones. Going to keep buying/trying until I collect them all.

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
