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: 13.5%

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

2009 was an excellent vintage that featured only light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. The result of these amazing conditions is a perfectly balanced and elegantly textured wine with supple tannins, rich fruit concentration and alluring notes of spice and wood. It is a lovely accompaniment to filet mignon topped with bleu cheese, grilled lamb chops or truffle buttered potatoes.

Tried a few bad clarets in my time, THIS is not one of them. If you've been hesitant to try a Claret, then make this the one to drink! Shared with friends over crusty bread, thin slices of ham with a gritty mustard and cheddar cheese and it held up well. Very tasty on its own. I will buy this again. And, it's in one of the collections, so check that out too!

I am loving this! Very balanced and fruit forward. It's a Napa Style Bordeaux - if that's possible. Good stuff!

This is a terrific wine for large dinner parties as it is mild enough to attract those who typically are not red drinkers by smooth enough to satisfy those who love reds. Great can't miss wine!
