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: 14.4%

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

Dark black with red hues, this wine is full-bodied with rich flavors of chocolate covered cherries, ripe plum, cassis and spice. The influence of aging the wine for 18 months in new American oak imparts subtle hints of vanilla and nutmeg that yield to the dominant fruit characteristics, ending with a long elegant finish. Accessible now, this wine will continue to age gracefully.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a young Cabernet meant to be drunk young. Its outgoing aromas of currants, berries, dusty earth, roasted vanilla bean and creme caramel are entirely accessible now with nothing held in reserve, and its round, supple, somewhat soft texture is the right vehicle for the rich, lush, lightly chocolaty, well-fruited flavors that follow on. It can age a few years, but its lifeline is not enormous so drink it up now in its lusty youth. "

This cab is truly a treat ! So full of chocolate and dark fruits. A little spice notes also. Really a great tasting cab for the money.

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...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
