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

A wonderful red blend with intense flavors of berry, chocolate and spice artfully blended to achieve a complex and worldly wine.

Blend: 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 4% Syrah, 3% Tempranillo

Critical Acclaim

"A soft leafiness plays through this wine from its first seconds in the glass to its long delicate finish. It needs a day of air before the sumptuous oak accents begin to recede, revealing a feathery structure and persistent flavors given focus by the cool vintage. Pretty as it is, it’s a wine to cellar, or to decant for lamb chops."
93 Points

"Smooth and open-textured, this is layered with plum, currant, coffee and spice notes, finishing with refinement. This has presence and persistence. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Tempranillo."
90 Points
