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: 14.2%

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

83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot.

In its youth, our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon shows more of the finesse seen in our Calistoga Estate which comprises 50% of the overall blend. Floral highlights of violets, vanilla and red fruit dominate. With a bit of bottle age, the more powerful characteristics from our Yountville Estate will make themselves known. Dark chocolate and berry jam punctuated with graham cracker toastiness and hints of menthol will flesh out in the glass.

Style: Smooth & Supple
Oak overtones compliment this rich yet smooth cab. To make my review as simplistic as possible (and because I am not good at describing wines using the traditional notes) this wine was as close to the 2007 Caymus Napa cabernet that I have tried so far. I think I'm going to start calling it my girl-on-a-budget-Caymus. Loved it!

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,...
