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: 14.0%

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

Dark chocolate, anise and sage complement a bright red cherry and raspberry perfume. A wine of elegance from an unusually cool season, showing peppercorn spice and plush forest fruits. With a higher component of Mourvedre than previous vintages, this wine makes a statement with its fragrance, vibrant acidity, and delicate, long lingering, chalky tannins.

Blend: 41% Grenache, 31% Shiraz, 28% Mourvedre

Critical Acclaim

"Bright purple hue; an intoxicating and fragrant bouquet of spicy red fruits, earth tones and provencale garrigue; the medium-bodied palate is juicy, meticulous, energetic and poised, offering harmony of all parts to conclude with a long and expansive finish."
94 Points

"When Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke purchased this 250-acre vineyard in 2001, they brought on Peter Fraser to make the wine and Michael Lane to farm the vines. They began to implement biodynamic practices in 2008, and to nudge the style toward traditional winemaking in open-top fermenters without added yeast. The grenache in this blend (from bush vines planted in 1946) adds bright red fruit, combining with younger vine shiraz (31 percent) and mourvèdre (28 percent) in a scent that carries the arid scrub of McLaren Vale right to the glass. The wine ends clean and fresh, with a light tannin pickup, as friendly and pleasantly funky as a finely grown Mediterranean blend from the southern Rhône."
