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

Dark ruby color, with purple reflections. Intense nose of macerated cherries and licorice. In the mouth the wine is full-bodied with a generous attack, a pleasant freshness and elegant tannins. This well-balanced wine shows a typical expression of southern Rhône wine with thyme and rosemary aftertaste.

Pair with grilled or roasted lamb, beef, grilled rabbit with thyme and rosemary, with garlic mashed potatoes,

Critical Acclaim

"Very pure, with gorgeous plum and black cherry aromas and flavors laced with enticing spice, graphite and violet notes, followed by a long, silky finish. Delicious. Drink now."

I found this wine to be harsh with an acidic after taste. This wine must be paired with pizza or spaghetti to be more tolerable.

I poured this wine today for myself and my entire harvest crew for lunch. It was well received- a true food wine. Good acid that can hold up well to most foods. Not flawed in any way. Bright cherry notes. Clean. Well-made with good fruit typicity. It is a lighter style, with red fruit and cranberry notes. I would think of this wine as a cheaper substitute for Pinot noir in most pairings.

I found this wine bitter and astringent. Not pleasing. Delas provides a MUCH better experience in a low price Cotes du Rhone

This wine drinks like a finely aged cab in the $50-$100 range. I would prefer this over Silver Oak Napa or Twomey any day. Killer price point.

A very satisfying wine, benefits from a bit of time to breathe and complements red meats nicely. Relatively dry with a nice balance of fruit, tannins, and a hint of bitterness. This is hard to beat at this price.

Light-bodied and acidic, with a cider-like aftertaste, the bottle might taste better with another year as the tannins help it mellow out some so you can taste the flavors more.
