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.

Winemaker's Notes

60% Syrah and 40% Garnacha

Made from 25 year old Syrah and 35 year old Garnacha fruit that was hand harvested. Each variety was fermented and aged separately. The wine is made from only free-run juice and both varietals saw a short time in French oak barrels to add complexity and soften the tannin structure prior to blending.

Las Colinas del Ebro are a new line of wines inspired by the high altitude vines near the river Ebro, one of the great rivers of Europe and a profound influence on the landscape and history of northern Spain. Because of its strategic importance, the towns and hills of the Ebro staged the bloodiest battles of the Spanish civil war in the summer of 1938 and any visit to this region in southern Catalonia leaves one with an indelible sense of those tragic events. More cheerfully, this area is now a hot-spot for quality wine production and gastronomic creativity.

Critical Acclaim

"Sexy aromas of red and dark berries, baking spices and dried rose. Very fresh, offering nervy black raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a late note of vanilla. Pleasantly juicy, with straightforward finishing fruit and an echo of vanilla. This is a fine value."

A light-bodied Spanish red blend that is a tad too acidic and unbalanced for my taste. There is a lingering, jalapeño-spicy finish.
