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: 14.5%

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

The influence of the sea and soil combined with slow ripening make for a deep ruby-red wine with a touch of violet and great aroma??c complexity. The nose evokes ripe fruits with elegant notes of vanilla and spice from the well-integrated oak. Ideal with lamb or game birds.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Spicy cherry, dark berry, herbal and floral aromas show good energy and precision. Bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors are given lift and spine by tangy minerality, which adds back-end cut. Gains power and smokiness with air, along with a musky nuance and gentle tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's fruit on the long, sweet finish. Shows a suave balance of richness and vivacity, with an earthiness that's highly reminiscent of serious Burgundy."

Good pinot; I would give it 4 stars but for the price-point I expect a little more. I like Schug for almost half the price just as much.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
