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: 14.0%

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

Highly complex sensory impact combining both cool and warm region expressions of the individual varietal aromas and flavours together with subtle secondary winemaking influences

Soft, round and full bodied with rich plum and mulberry fruit flavours, complexed with dark chocolate, vanilla and clove spice. Seamless and well integrated with its firm, chewy tannins, balanced acidity, generous length and warm lingering earthy, chocolate and dark fruit finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Lush and full-bodied with ripe blackberry and cassis; spicy, smooth and balanced, juicy with a nice oak component and a long finish. "

Not tasted. Only one star because the entire order was frozen during delivery pushing the corks out for several bottles. The order was returned and the replacement shipment is scheduled for March (warmer weather).
