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

A dark garnet core with a bright ruby rim and thick slow moving legs. The robust bouquet of freshly picked black currants, ripe blackberries and fresh cut lilacs balance the nose beautifully with hints of nutmeg. The medium acidity on the front palate, which starts with blueberry compote and lingonberries and transitions into spice notes of clovers, is just a preview to the wine's wonderful integration of oak with fruit. The wine finishes with intense dark chocolate shavings.

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Inky ruby. Smoky red and dark berry aromas are complicated by sexy vanillin oak, baking spices and fresh licorice. Silky dark berry flavors show good depth and become smokier with air. Finishes with a touch of heat and good spicy persistence; very soft tannins add gentle grip."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
