Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

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 1985 vintage of this wine was ranked #3 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1988

Classic nose, opulent but mineral. In the mouth: fruit, fat, roundness and balance. The body is opulent and yet discreet at the same time, confirming the olfactory impressions.

Critical Acclaim

"Good medium red. Black raspberry, violet and a suggestion of dusty minerality on the nose. Dense, lush and chewy, but higher-pitched and less expressive today than the RSV. Smooth, rich, highly concentrated flavors of purple fruits and licorice. Finishes broad, saline and very long. 94(+?) points. "
94 Points

"A slightly less elegant but more complex nose that is intensely floral with a superb range of spice and fruit elements woven into the aromatic framework but the primary non-fruit nuance is a very distinctive rose petal character that gives way to detailed, pure and vibrant broad-shouldered flavors that drive home to an explosive, powerful, linear and tautly muscled finish where effects of the stem are quite evident. This is at present extremely backward and it's clear that not all of the structural elements are in sync."
