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 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of forest floor, blackberries, and cassis as well as beautiful tannin management in the sense that the tannins are silky. This approachable, soft, generous, evolved, seductive wine can be consumed over the next decade.

Critical Acclaim

"Smoky vanilla bean-scented oak adds a nice flavor dimension and at this stage slightly overshadows the ripe currant and black cherry fruit. But it's well-balanced and focused and on the finish, turning complex, with a long, integrated aftertaste. Drink now through 2011. 400 cases made."
