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: 14.5%

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

Very dark, almost black garnet color. The nose is subtle but has superb depth. Perfectly integrated, almost imperceptible woodiness with a hint of blackcurrants. The wine has an immediate sensation of density and develops on the palate for a long time. It is full-bodied, without being aggressive. At the moment, the Syrah is very dominant, but is still very well complemented by the smoothness of the Mourvèdre. The finish is very long, remaining balanced with well-defined but perfectly blended tannins in a very classic DBR style. This is a wine that shows great potential.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a modern-style Corbières with dark, concentrated black fruit flavors of cherry, berry and plum flesh framed by a rich, sweet toasted oak character. The palate is lush and velvety, with notes of vanilla pod and chocolate fudge that stay through the long finish. Drink now-2014."
91 Points

"From the 1,359-acre estate the Barons de Rothschild puchased in 1999, this is a chewy, savory wine. The braised beef scents open into roast plum flavor, its darkness echoed by licorice notes. It lasts long, buoyed by firm, fine tannins, a wine to drink now with Mediterranean stifado or to cellar for four to six years."
