Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Deep ruby. Finely tuned cassis aromas, a touch of earth, graphite and meat spice. A full-bodied, deeply textured palate with a spicy, savory complexity.
"Bright red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of black cherry, blackberry, raspberry, licorice, mocha and chocolatey oak, lifted by a violet topnote. Silky and plush if quite young, offering lovely creamy depth to its dark fruit and chocolate flavors. Impressively dense and long, with substantial but edge-free tannins. Still a tad warm and in need of time in bottle to settle down. But this blend boasts outstanding potential."
International Wine Cellar
"A solid, winey Cabernet, with pleasantly layered anise, currant, blackberry paste and sweet tobacco leaf notes. An echo of apple wood holds the finish."

biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
