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: 14.6%

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

Intense ruby red in color, Sondraia offers layered aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry, mocha, graphite, and a hint of sweet spice. On the palate, it is full-bodied and supple, with refined, soft tannins and a silky texture.

Sondraia makes a fine accompaniment to barbecued or roasted meats, filet mignon, steak tartare, pasta, or rich risotto.

Critical Acclaim

"A Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend, this shows immense density and richness, and it exudes bright tones of cherry, blackberry, chocolate, tar, clove and licorice. The bouquet is elegant and complex, but the smoothness of the mouthfeel is what sets this wine apart."
94 Points

"Medium saturated dark ruby. Smoky red cherry and peony aromas are complicated by ink, cocoa and herbs on the aromatic nose. Then creamy and superripe in the middle, with a hint of game adding complexity to the chocolatey red berry and underbrush flavors. Finishes with utterly suave, mounting tannins.
Rating: 91(+?)"
91 Points

"A rich and supple texture up front paves the way for cherry, blackberry and violet flavors. As this finishes, the firm structure takes over, which will ensure a decade of development. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024."
