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: 14.1%

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

Brilliant dark ruby red color with deep purple shade. Intense nose with red fruit aromas and dry tea leaves, followed by subtle sweet spices. Very concentrated structure with very ripe, juicy and polished tannins, round mid palate with a long and pleasant finish.

Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carmenère

Critical Acclaim

"Berry, cassis and cola aromas are standard and clean. The palate is bright, with some chop and bite due to hard tannins and acids. Flavors suggest blackberry, cassis and black cherry, while coffee, toast, mocha and other dark, oak-based flavors control the finish."
89 Points

"88+ pts

Opaque ruby. Sexy aromas of cherry-cola and vanilla, with a spicy quality adding energy. Chewy, palate-staining dark berry flavors show very good intensity and become sweeter with air. Firm tannins linger on a spicy, smoky finish. This is a baby."

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

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,...
