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: 14.5%

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

Pinyolet Seleccion is produced from old Garnacha and Cariñena vines that are organically grown. The Masroig subzone of Montsant, were Pinyolet Seleccion is produced, is considered by the farmers of this region to have the best and oldest Cariñena vines.

A good pairing would be game birds like quail, pheasant, goose or duck, as well as roast chicken with garlic and dried herbs or roast pork tenderloin. Veal, pork or beef sausage prepared with savory herbs would also be a very good match.

Blend: 80% Garnacha, 20% Cariñena

Critical Acclaim

"Slightly more expensive, the 2010 Pinyolet Seleccion is a blend of 80% old vine Grenache and 20% Carinena (from vines planted in 1945 and 1928 respectively). The wine was aged eight months in 2-year old French oak barrels. It exhibits copious notes of damp earth, forest floor, and a fiery, Graves-like, volcanic smokiness that comes from the vineyard’s soils. Rich, full-bodied and deep with plenty of kirsch, raspberry and black currant fruit characteristics, this mouthfilling red should drink well for 5-6 years."
93 Points

"Bright ruby. Complex, perfumed bouquet displays scents of raspberry liqueur, fresh flowers, licorice and smoky minerals. Sweet and silky in texture, with juicy flavors of red berries, anise and tangy minerals. Very long and perfumed on the finish, with subtle tannins adding grip."
91 Points
