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

Encourage your inner inspirations while savoring a glass of this full-bodied and juicy red wine blend. Rich aromas of spice, blackberry and plum rise temptingly from the glass. On the palate, these jammy fruit characteristics are met by vanilla and a touch of sweetness from the perfectly ripe grapes. Tannins are bold and upfront - the perfect wine to sip on a cold winter's night or alongside some good old fashioned BBQ.

Style: Light & Fruity
Pleasant, easy to drink, very fruity and smooth with some sweetness. If you are new to wine drinking you will find this slides right down. The $10/bottle is a little more than it should be.

Style: Light & Fruity
I categorized this wine as "light and fruity" which is only partially accurate. There is no way this blend of sangiovese, zinfandel, and cabernet sauvignon could be considered light, however fruity is an understatement. The Handcraft Inspiration red is a fruit-forward, fruit-packed, fruit-focused, fruity red. Powerful aromas of plums, cherry, raspberry, with subtle earthiness and chocolate notes. The big red fruit flavors are strong from beginning to end, making the hint of spice and coffee in the finish seem like a figment of your imagination. This wine is an every day drinker, that will even please the in-laws.
