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: 14.0%

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

Fine and elegant, with aromas of rich fruit, licorice, spices, and mineral touches. In the mouth strong and elegant, tasty and balanced. Good quality tannins and a lingering finish, with well-integrated hints of oak.

Critical Acclaim

"Forceful and fully oaked, with dark, rubbery, minty black fruit flavors. The palate is a bit rugged but solid as granite. Tastes toasty and roasted, with black fruit and licorice flavors front and center. Rolls along well on the finish, showing lemon zest and clove notes. "
91 Points

"The 2007 Capricho de Landaluce is sourced from 80-year-old Tempranillo vines and fermented in 500-liter French oak casks for 18 months. It has a "juicy" black cherry and cassis scented nose that is modern and pure in style. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins and crisp acidity. There is fine weight on the fleshy, silky finish that caresses the mouth with succulent dark plum and cassis. This is a finely made, modern Rioja that should age well. Drink 2013-2020. "
