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.

Winemaker's Notes

Red color with shiny violet tones. Very complex and elegant bouquet. Plenty of wild red fruits like blackberries and cherries, licorice and delicate hints of flowers. On the palate, the wine shows a remarkable balance with very elegant, silky tannins. Drink now through 2017.

Fabre Montmayou's Gran Reserva is the most "modern" bottling produced at the winery in terms of style, sourced from very ripe grapes and aged in new French oak. From 103 year old vines this dense, lusty bottling is sure to turn heads.

Critical Acclaim

"All of the following red wines were produced with native ferments. The 2009 Malbec Gran Reserva was sourced from 103 year old vines and aged for 12 months in new French oak. Smoky oak, game, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry inform the nose of a layered, plush, flavorful wine with superb volume and length for its modest price. It has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years and will provide enjoyment through 2019."
