Style: Smooth & Supple

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: 13.5%

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

Deliciously pure, rich and deep, our 2012 Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fragrant aromas of cherry preserves, tobacco leaf, molasses and vanilla from the twelve months of American Oak aging. This supple wine features tiers of cocoa nibs, blackberry compote and cranberry reduction interlacing with harmonious notes of roasted hazelnut. The four percent Petite Sirah adds intense color and ripe blueberry fruit to the palate. This wine shows tremendous depth with its balanced medium plus body and round supple tannins. It's a deliciously smooth Cabernet Sauvignon in the classic Napa Valley tradition.

Try pairing with herb-crusted lamb chops with celery root puree, braised short ribs with buttermilk mashed potatoes or a vegetarian option like fried tofu with spicy gingersesame sauce.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
