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: 13.8%

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 2011 vintage displays aromas of blueberry jam, strawberry tart, boysenberries and a hint of teriyaki, with barrel notes of vanilla and cinnamon. The blend is 88% Cabernet, 11% Merlot and a splash of Zinfandel for a little berry spice. The wine drinks of rich black cherries, red raspberries and juicy ripe plums with a touch of dried herbs. Medium in weight, the wine shows smooth tannins, flavorful fruit tones and a rich berry extract that lingers on the palate.

This versatile Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with juicy grilled meats, including prime rib, grilled burgers or pork tenderloin. Try it with roasted game hens or smoked Gouda or aged Parmesan cheese. It's also perfect to enjoy a glass before dinner or with friends.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 3% Zinfandel, 1% Cabernet Franc

Very nice wine that needed to breath before consumiung. Afterwards very nice notes of berry, smoke and complexity for its price. Would buy again.

Style: Smooth & Supple
Not a bad Cab from Napa for the price. Taste of blueberries, vanilla and a slight tart taste that reminds me of early harvest strawberries. Tannins are present and not that strong. Perhaps aging would help? Everyone enjoyed it on Football Sunday and there were no complaints.

Not good. Thin body with muted flavors. Acidic with the taste of alcohol. Will not buy again.

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,...
