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

#47 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Ruby red with violet hues. Elegant, with good intensity - you can feel the fruits of berries, mint leaves. Well structured, fruity and dry.

Pair with dishes of pasta with red sauces, white meats and red meats.

Critical Acclaim

"Sweet blackberry, plum and pomegranate fruit is fresh and vibrant as this red unfolds across the palate. Hints of flowers and spices intermingle, but this is more about the juicy fruit. Drink now through 2018. 19,000 cases imported."

Just opened this up, bought it a couple of weeks ago, no particular food pairing just drinking it. It is young but yowza it is going to be good if I can keep my hands off of it long enough. Great little bottle of wine and a great value too.
