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: 14.0%

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

Deep, intense ruby in color, the bouquet recalls ripe red fruit and blackberries with notes of Mediterranean vegetation and eucalyptus and a subtle nuance of baked bell peppers from the component varieties.

Structured, velvet-textured and complex on the palate, its rich, layered flavors and roundness are sustained by a vibrant, vivid freshness and sweet, well balanced, perfectly integrated tannins. A very consistent, very long finish evokes the lingering aromas of the bouquet.

Critical Acclaim

"Wow. This is really powerful, with aromas of blueberries and blackberries and hints of spices. Then there is an earthy, meaty undertone. Full body, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Focused and solid. Very structured. Best in 2015. "
95 Points

"The 2008 Orma is striking in this vintage. An exciting array of dark fruit, chocolate, spices and leather emerges from this dense, vibrant wine. A powerful underlying vein of minerality frames the wine all the way through to the fresh, vibrant finish. Freshly cut roses, licorice and spices reappear on the striking finish. Orma is 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 14 months in French oak barrels, 60% new. Orma is one of the most improved wines in Tuscany. The 2008 is simply terrific. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028."
