Style: Smooth & Supple

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: 14.7%

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

The 2010 Napa Cellars Zinfandel hosts bright aromas of red currant, raspberry and complex notes of black tea and baking spices. The aromas lead to a rich mouthfeel with flavors of rhubarb pie, fresh cherries and juicy red fruit character. Notes of milk toffee and medjool dates are concentrated in the mid-palate. The wine is well balanced with firm acidity and pointed tannins on the finish. This Zinfandel has pleasing, lingering notes of cream soda and bakers' chocolate on the extended finish.

Critical Acclaim

"With its sights set on beautifully rendered ripe-berry fruit that is enriched by wonderfully sympathetic sweet oak at every stop, this immensely satisfying Zinfandel garners high marks for its focus persistence and balance, all of which makes it into one of the best current values to be had. It is so well crafted and polished that it invites early drinking and there would seem to be few reasons for waiting, but further beauty awaits those who can exercise even two or three years of patience. And we suspect, that it will still be rewarding for several years beyond that. "

Pair with: Beef > BBQ, Cheese > Hard
An earthy, mineral aroma leads to a rich , smooth , ripe blueberry and dark cherry mouthful with a lingering fruit filled finish touched by mild oak and dry tannins. A superb Zinfandel that challenged my love of Cabs !

Style: Smooth & Supple
If you like fruity Zins with lots of tannins, this is it. Not my personal preference style for a Zin, but it's definitely drinkable. Not sure it would become more mellow or complex with age.

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...
