Style: Smooth & Supple

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: 13.3%

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 wine will age gracefully and will gain complexity in the bottle. Dark ruby color with very floral aromas reminiscent of a Volnay, with background black tea notes. The expressive nose gives way to black cherry and pomegranate flavors on the palate, where the fruit is balanced by just the right amount of food-friendly acidity. This Pinot Noir is notable for its ultra-velvety mouthfeel. An elegant and lingering finish is highlighted by spice notes.

This medium-bodied wine compliments simply grilled salmon, herb chicken, duck, and mushroom tofu stir-fry.
