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%.

I had an earlier vintage several years ago and figured I would give it a try since it was on sale. I'm always worried about a Pinot under $20 (and in this case under $15). This proves why. It had very little character, a bit fruity on the front, but totally drops off and leaves a weak aftertaste in the end. Not sure if this was a shipping issue or the wine just isn't that good. Will not buy again.

Learn About BearBoat

Like the delightful bears on the label, BearBoat wines are suitable for any occasion. The cool climate of the Russian River Valley allows the grapes to retain acidity while slowly developing intense flavors.

One of his guiding principles is to create a wine that can stand up to all types of food. His many years of experience and gut instinct make each and every bottle of BearBoat truly exceptional.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
