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: 13.5%

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

Purplish dark and deep red with ruby red shades. Sweet, ample, elegant, and very intense aromas that are fruity with light tones of oak. The palate is soft, voluminous, and ample with sweet tannins of medium density in good balance with the acidity. A fruity, sweet, long lasting finish.

Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Canaiolo

Critical Acclaim

"A wine of finesse and elegance. Cherry, licorice, spice flavors and a saline element combine seamlessly with the medium bodied frame and firm structure. The savory note continues on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2020."
