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

This is a big Pinot, with great acid structure, but soft, smooth tannins. Aromas are of anise, cola and deep dark cherry along with smoky barrel notes. Flavors of candied cherry and red licorice are followed by a spicy mid-palate and a nice vanillin, faintly smoky finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Pinot Noir Grand Firepeak Cuvee boasts gorgeous density and sheer power. Black cherries, menthol, cloves and licorice all take shape in this intense, virile yet beautifully balanced Pinot. Stylistically, this is a California version of Nuits St. Georges. The 2010 spent nine months in French oak barrels, 40% new."
91 Points

"Deep ruby color; smooth texture with black cherry and spice; round, ripe and crisp with tangy acidity; quite lovely"

this wine does not taste like a central coast pinot ~ it is big and spicy, and drinks more like a syrah. I would not buy again, but if you like big pinots, this is it!
