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

Rich, concentrated, dark, black fruit opens to aromas of sandal wood and toasty oak. The palate displays blueberries, blackberries and spicebox. This is a rich, fleshy wine held together with a solid backbone of silky tannins and firm natural acidity.

It pairs beautifully with duck, turkey, grilled chicken and tuna or salmon.

What a gem this wine is. Great forward fruit, like strawberry juice with that awesome velvety finish I always look for to in a good Pinot. I have purchase several prior vintages of Foley Pinot and they always impress.
