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%.
Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"A juicy, racy version, featuring a coiled core of red licorice, linzer torte and red currant preserves, backed by singed apple wood and tobacco notes, with a stony undercurrent on the finish. Should stretch out after modest cellaring."
91 Points

"The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape (90% Grenache and 10% Syrah) offers loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with Christmas fruitcake, incense, roasted herb and spice box notes. This medium to full-bodied, luscious 2011 is ideal for drinking over the next 7-10 years. "
