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: 14.8%

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

Biker's legendary blackberry aromas mix with cherry, plums, menthol, white pepper and a touch of meaty black olives and oregano. A touch of cedar box from the oak aging adds to the complexity. The Bad Boy of Zin delivers again with flavors of plums, cherries and boysenberries with a smoky char to balance the fruit. A sweet fruit entry digs deep on berry flavors and finishes smooth and bold with a long, long lingering finish. A massive in-your-face Zin, taking no prisoners. Biker rocks!

Pair this audacious Zinfandel with lasagna, meat lovers' pizza, rotisserie chicken, grilled leg of lamb or smoked short ribs.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and zesty, with distinctive aromas of raspberry and smoky cracked pepper that lead to plush, briary flavors of black cherry, anise and sage."

Disappointed. Loved the 2009 so bought a case of the 2010. The first couple bottles were so off putting that I thought maybe my palate had changed. Then I ran across some 2009s in a local store and compared...my palate is just fine. Cherry and pepper and sage it may be, but it is far closer to my expectation of a Shiraz. The 2009 is more blackberry/bramble fruit than cherry and a heavier feel with a velvety finish. To me, the 2010 is watery/thin on the front and acidic on the finish. 2009 is chocolatey and the 2010 is bacony. OK for a Shiraz but not what I wanted from a Zin.

Not remotely pleased with this, the first Biker we've ever NOT enjoyed. Really hoping it was an off bottle, especially given its decent rating and the fact that my sister and I purchased 10 bottles between us. It was mediocre and never really opened up. Other Bikers from previous vintages have been terrific.

It's a different wine maker that's why it changed.
