Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
The deep, garnet red color reflects the opulent fragrance with ripe, dark berry fruits and black plum notes overlying complex, spicy oak highlights. The palate continues the dark fruit theme with blackberry notes evident. Savory complexity and cinnamon spice with hints of vanillin add breadth to the mid palate. Firm, velvety tannins balance the flavor concentration.
"Juicy red raspberry, wild strawberry and bright cherry flavors are at the core of this supple and refreshing wine, full of aromatics and green tea notes, with slight gamy details gaining momentum on the finish."
"Brancott's top Pinot Noir is a round, mouth-filling wine that finishes tart and long. Cranberry, mocha, roasted parsnip, mushroom and smoke notes make for a complex wine that may be enjoyed now and over the next several years."

it is so difficult is why it is so loved. Pinot Noir hails from Burgundy, a region known for crafting the most collectible and sought-after wines from this varietal.
