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.

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

Medium ruby with flecks of violet; exotic aromas of liquor liked cherry, spicy cake; ripe and nicely concentrated; very Garnacha in caracter; a lot fruit; medium finish with ripe, sweet tannins and nicely fresh.

Critical Acclaim

"89+ pts

($13; 85% garnacha del pais and garnacha peluda and 15% syrah, aged in a combination of new and older French and American barriques) Ruby-red. Deep, youthfully bound-up aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and woodsmoke. Chewy dark fruit flavors show very good depth, complemented by notes of tarragon and candied violet. Slow to reveal itself, but the fruit is plenty deep; the finish closes with impressive thrust and dusty tannins. Needs a little time to unfold."
