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: 15.0%

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

The wine has a brilliant deep garnet color. The nose of this wine is an interesting mix of bright pure fruit; mulberries and blackberries; and heady spicy notes with notes of five spice. There is also a floral undertone. The wine enters the palate with power, bursting with bright red and black fruit notes. There is a broad textured mid palate and a long finish of black pepper spice. The tannins are firm and the wine leaves with a sense of freshness.

Critical Acclaim

"This red offers nice briary grip from the get-go, with dark currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors. Mouthwatering mesquite notes charge through the finish. Rock-solid, showing lots of character."

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