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

"Complex aromas of mineral, blueberry and currant follow through to a full body, with superfine tannins and a long, long finish. This is exceptional. Best of all time. "
97 Points

"Blueberries, minerals, flowers and sandalwood on the nose. Full body, with chewy tannins and fresh fruit and citrus aftertaste. Beautiful polish to the wine. Best in 2018. "
94 Points

"The soft, sexy 2009 exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, black currants, smoke and forest floor. Opulent and round with an attractive viscosity as well as outstanding purity, depth and length, it should drink well for two decades. While not one of the longest lived wines of the vintage, it is among the most precocious, flattering and charming at present."
93 Points

"Purple red. Aromas of red berry fruit cocktail lifted by spices and flowers. Ripe acidity gives the wine's red fruit flavors good lift. Finishes clean and persistent, with suave, palate-dusting tannins and lingering berry and mineral qualities. Subtly complex and lively wine.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points "
91 Points

"This is a delicate wine with a very Margaux feel. The delicious red berry fruits and light layers of tannin are in balance, suggesting a wine that will age relatively quickly, and is already drinkable now."

Learn About Margaux

(mahr-GOH) Silky Smooth Soft, elegant, feminine… these are words often used to describe the wines of Margaux. The commune is different from its northern neighbors of the Haut-Medoc in both geography and style. Home to the name-sharing premier cru, Margaux lays a few marshlands south of St.-Julien. Notable Facts As in other Medoc appellations, Cabernet Sauvignon leads the...
