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.

Critical Acclaim

"Balsamic, woodsy notes add a wild character to this burly red. Cherry, licorice and tar flavors hold the center, while dense tannins and tobacco accents follow on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2027. 200 cases imported."
