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: 13.9%

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

COLOR: Dense and Intense Ruby Purple.
NOSE: Deep, dominated by an elegant and spicy barrel aging. A background of fresh leather, truffles and meaty notes rises powerfully, blending with graphite and wet stones hints. Then comes the fruit made of black cherries, bright blackcurrant. Slight tones of black pepper, dried herbs and balsamic notes are above a menthol accent. Bread crust, aromatized tobacco and subtle sweet chocolate add to the complexity.
PALATE: Shows a still evolving, fine and impressive structure. A noble presence of oak joins the general balsamic entity. Fresh and fine tight tannins create a true armor, yet integrated to the substance, that will surely be polished by time. The very tactile texture never prevails over the wine balance. Long and vibrant, the finish underlines the herbal and balsamic notes as well has the brightness of the unctuous dazzling fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"After a few down years and a couple of winemaker changes, Domus Aurea is back in fine form. The nose is heady, leathery and powerful, while the palate is compact, bullish and tannic. Tastes fabulous with its dynamic mix of brawny berry, tobacco, toast and leather. A Maipo Valley gem with length and complexity. Drink now through 2014."

Style: Smooth & Supple
This is a well made wine. Slightly tight on the nose and somewhat austere on the palate at first. Opens up with time to reveal characteristics of a well made and polished cab. That said, I found the wine somewhat lacking in body and length. Perhaps more cellar time would allow the wine to develop more depth. Not enough umph to justify the 50.00 plus per bottle.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

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,...
