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.

Winemaker's Notes

The aromas have the same signature blackberry, violet, currant and mocha that it's had in previous vintages but also takes on more of a cigar box component.

Critical Acclaim

"Tightly focused and precisely defined, with dark berry, chocolate and rose petal flavors on a supple frame, lingering easily on the polished finish."

Bold and Smokey Taste! I was impressed with the heavy body and smooth texture of the wine. Great wine value and would be perfect with anything off the BBQ... Will buy again.

Pair with: Lamb, Cheese > Cheddar, Chocolate
Jammy fruity nose with a lot of structure for a cab/syrah blend. Well structured to remove any grip of tannin. Wonderful and flexible fire pit wine to enjoy with smoked cheeses, rack of lamb or even chocolate.
