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: 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

A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Cool spring temperatures accompanied by abundant rainfall yielded a wine with very balanced alcohol and acidity levels.

Critical Acclaim

"Big cherry fruit and iris aromas with notes of moss and autumn leaves. Soft, round and fleshy palate, very refined, silky tannins, sweet fruit and hints of vanilla oak in the finish. Less typical of the vintage, but beautifully crafted. "
93 Points

"Delicate and fruity with a blackberry and mineral character. Full body, with firm tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Made from biodynamic grapes. Give it a year or two to come together."
91 Points

"This ripe red boasts flavors of cherry, cedar and herb matched to a medium-bodied frame. The acidity and tannins are in the correct proportions, offering a lingering finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2015 through 2024. 10,800 cases made."
90 Points

"Made from grapes grown using biodynamic viticulture practices, this starts off with aromas of underbrush, spice and black berries. The juicy palate delivers a solid core of black cherry accented with cooking spices, espresso and toasted notes. Already enjoyable, this will gain complexity over the next few years. "

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
