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.

Winemaker's Notes

Sweet dried cherries, licorice and tobacco waft from the glass in this delicate, feminine red. The aromas and flavors are a touch forward.

Critical Acclaim

For the top wines, the grapes are crushed by foot and fermentations are done in open-top wood and cement vats, using only indigenous yeasts."
