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

The 2011 Browne Family 'Tribute' Red Blend is introduced with aromas of leather, cigar box, and a hint of black cherry. The palate continues with notes of plum, maraschino cherries, dry cocoa and a touch of baking spice. Lingering vanilla and fruit notes give way to balanced tannins on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"In this blend of 47% Merlot, 23% Malbec, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 7% Syrah, Andrew Browne pays tribute to his sons Pavin and Riley with this bodified red. Juicy, lush and textural: a dynamo. coffee beans and black berries merge into the fast lane to deliver a ripe-fruited, dry tannin superstar. Spiced rhubarb, pencil shavings, violets and jammy blackberry add even more depth. "
