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

Elegant and seductive, with red raspberry, cherry and blueberry flavors, notes of roasted coee bean, a hint of vanilla and a touch of mocha on the finish.

This wine's subtle toasty notes and ripe fruit flavors will be enhanced when paired with roasted or grilled meats, hearty pasta dishes, or wood-fire oven pizzas.

Blend: 45% Zinfandel, 25% Petite Sirah, 23% Bordeaux Varietals (Cabernet & Merlot), 7% Other Red Varietals
