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: 14.5%

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

The 2012 vintage was a combination of three vineyards of Cabernet Sauvignon. The largest of the lots carried incredible dark color and rich fruit into this blend. The aromas show dark blackberry fruit, dried fig, black raspberry, earthy Dry Creek terrior notes, and a touch of roasted porcini mushrooms. Your first sip starts with rich blackberry jam, dried blueberry, milk chocolate, deep toasted coconut, black walnut, and finishing with fresh cranberry, ripe boysenberry, hints of vanilla and fi re toasted dill from aging in American Oak barrels.

Critical Acclaim

"Grown on steep, gravelly hillsides, this juicy, lush Cab generously offers blue and black berries in a seal of dusty tannins. An echo of soil and dark chocolate brings in an earthy side, and the addition of white peppered coffee keeps it lively. The nose, deep and inviting, is a cue to the gobby fruit within."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
