Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

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.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense red ruby color. Elegant aromas, well developed and complex evoking red ripe fruits, black cherry jam, and cassis, along with delicate spiced aromas from the oak aging. It is a wine of body, abundant tannins, and fine persistence. It is well balanced, and its structure will keep it well when cellared.

Critical Acclaim

"Portal del Alto's 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva displays an inviting nose of coffee/mocha, rose petal, clove, and blackcurrant. Ripe, sweetly-fruited, and well-balanced on the palate, this straightforward, tasty offering will provide enjoyment over the next 6-8 years. "
