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.

Critical Acclaim

"A very direct, compact and muscular style, with a dark core of currant, steeped blueberry and plum notes, liberally coated with roasted vanilla and melted licorice accents. Rather rounded for the vintage and a step behind the '11, relying more on a caressing edge than vigorous drive.
Barrel Sample: 91-94 Points"
94 Points

"This wine has weight and tannins that offer good structure, but it's the ripe, rich fruit that dominates. It's powerful and complex, and likely to age well.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points"
94 Points

"A wine with a mineral, blueberry and light clay character. Full body, with round and velvety tannins and a long finish. Shows plenty of mineral, iron and spice character. Can’t make up my mind if I like 2011 and 2012. I tasted both this time. 93-94"
94 Points

"Medium ruby-red. Spicy aromas of blueberry, violet, licorice and black pepper. In the mouth, concentrated but tightly wound flavors of fresh blueberry and blackcurrant come across as slightly subdued. This elegantly styled wine is impressively juicy and bright for the year, finishing with a lingering savory quality.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
