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: 14.6%

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

The 2008 19 Block Cuvée is Cabernet Sauvignon-based, layered with Malbec, Merlot and Syrah to produce a wine with pronounced fruit characteristics. Aromas of black cherry compote and ripe plum are accentuated with hints of vanilla and cardamom. A silky mouthfeel of cassis and milk chocolate leads into an immensely satisfying and lengthy finish.

The layers of flavor in this wine pair well with complex foods, including braised or grilled meats like lamb, pork or duck; spring or sweet onions; earthy flavors such as mushrooms, eggplant and fennel; harder cheeses with salt crystals such as Bravo Farms Silver Mountain or Beecher's Flagship Reserve.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh, pure and snappy, with vivid blackberry and wild berry, currant, sage and cedar. Well-built, showing firm acidity and just the right amount of tannins."
92 Points

"Grown on the steeps of Hess's Veeder Summit vineyard, rising from 1,300 to 2,000 feet with views of the Pacific, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (69 percent) with Malbec, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It's foresty and cool with the juiciness of blackberries and strawberries, then it finishes peppery, soft and relatively gentle for a mountain wine. A full-bodied blend for roast lamb."

This wine was just ok. I tried it from the bottle and then decanted it and it actually tasted better decanted. A bit too fruity for my taste.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
