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: 12.5%

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

The color is a deep garnet red. The nose is essentially fruity, with strong aromas of cassis and plums, and a touch of earth and spice. This is an ample, well-rounded wine that has sufficient tannins for ageing capacity. Games, grills and any kind of rich cuisines match well with this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Has a solid core of dark plum and currant fruit, but very racy iron and lavender notes dominate for now, with incense and tea hints on the finish. Should flesh out nicely in the near term. Best from 2009 through 2014."

I had a Crozes Hermitage in San Diego and loved it so, when I saw one here, thought "great!" Unfortunately, it's a bit sweeter than the one I'd had before, more fruit, less dry. If you're looking for a soft, fruity wine, with a bit more mouth feel than a pinot, then this is the one.
