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

The Emiliana Coyam displays intense dark violet-red color with aromas of ripe red and black fruits integrated with notes of spice, earth and a hint of vanilla. Beautifully balanced and full on the palate. Good structure with soft, round tannins. Elegant expressions of fruit delicately interwoven with oak, mineral, and toffee.

Blend: 41% Syrah, 29% Carmenere, 20% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Mourvedre, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"A suave red, with an intense juiciness to the raspberry, cherry and ripe tangerine flavors. Fresh acidity gives this good lift. The creamy finish is supported by medium-grained tannins. Syrah, Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre and Malbec."
91 Points

"The 2011 Coyam is a blend of 38% Syrah, 31% Carmenere, 19% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest equal parts Mourvedre (Monastrell), Malbec and Petit Verdot from the Los Robles estate in Colchagua. “Coyam” is the old word for oak forest (los robles), the name of the vineyard where the fruit is grown. The 2011 has a ripe, peachy, cherry and smoke nose, with hints of cured meats. We also tasted the 2010, 2007 and 2001 versions of this wine, all cool vintages, but the blend has been changing from eminently Bordeaux to a predominance of Syrah plus Carmenere (and the Merlot has disappeared). This has resulted in a juicier, meatier wine, with chewy tannins. This is a powerful red blend, very well crafted, slightly international-styled. "
91 Points

"Give this time in the glass and its oak notes begin to diminish as the ripe black fruit gains prominence. This is biodynamically grown, a luscious blend of syrah, carmenère, merlot and cabernet, with hints of mourvedre and malbec, a warm red perfect for meats slow roasted over a campfire on a cool summer night."

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....
