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.

Winemaker's Notes

Dark red with bluish tones. Its typicity is reflected on the nose through notes of black fruits and plums, accompanied by traces of chocolate and vanilla from its aging in new oak. It feels wide in the mouth, with sweet, velvety tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-weight, with a nice smoked mesquite edge to the braised fig, blackberry and coffee notes. Dark, but stays fresh through the smoldering finish. Drink now through 2010. 2,084 cases made. "

Bought this several times, it's a steal at the half price they've been offering. Strong full bodied Malbec, a great find.

This wine was rated highly and was supposed to be "light and smooth". Apparently, my taste buds are out of kink because this wine was so dry it sucked the spit out of my mouth. I felt like someone had stuck a vacuum hose down my throat after two glasses.
