Style: Big & Bold

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 aromas are well-defined with concentrated cassis and ripe black cherry, backed by mocha and toasted vanilla notes. On the palate, this full-bodied tannic Cabernet-based blend has a firm mid-palate presence and loast of cellar-worthy potential. As the spectrum of flavors unfolds, the huckleberry and raspberry give way to a complex mocha, coffee, vanilla matrix - all balanced under the fruit notes, giving the wine a tingly and silky finish. This is a serious wine - a truly wonderful splurge.

Try it with a mushroom-encrusted filet mignon served with sun-dried tomato compote and a side of roasted blue potatoes with sea salt. This wine, when cellared properly, will drink well through 2030.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Syrah, 2% Merlot, 2% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

"With a pedigree of Howell Mountain and Oakville fruit, this Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Malbec blend is barrel-aged for 20 months and given one year in bottle. From the first sip, it rockets to its high and mighty purpleness, a violet-stained black cherry and maple toastiness. Grainy tannins are licked by raspberry and espresso—it's big and waiting to evolve."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
