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

Vibrant red color with aromas of red cherries, raspberries, and violets waft from the glass along with notes of toasty oak. On the palate, the fresh berry flavors mingle with spice notes and there's a hint of soft caramel on the finish. This is a creamy, medium-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life. It goes great with everything from hamburgers and chicken to pasta and mild cheeses.

Pairs perfectly with Duck and Smoked Pork Cassoulet, Lamb burger with aged Manchego and Smoked Paprika, or Caramelized Onion and Butternut Squash Tart with Goat Cheese and Thyme.

Critical Acclaim

"Raspberry, violet and pepper on the lively nose. A step up in density from the Cocina Tinto blend but still quite dry and savory, showing a fine-grained texture and good energy to its berry and spice flavors. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and very good limestone lift.

Range: 89+ Points"

Learn About Argentina

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector. A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...
