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

This 100% old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon shows tremendous potential and typicity in the broadest sense of the word. Deep, intense ruby-red in color, with complex aromas of red fruits, plums, cherries, and notes of ripe black fruits such as blackberries and blueberries combine with a sweet touch of vanilla and coffee. The balance of fruit and acidity complemented by sweet and silky tannins promises long cellaring potential.

Critical Acclaim

"Ruby-red. Intense, spice-accented aromas of dried cherry, redcurrant and pipe tobacco, with a hint of cedar in the background. Fleshy and sweet, showing a seamless texture to the deep, bright red fruit compote and candied rose flavors. Picks up a smoky quality with air and finishes with outstanding clarity and lingering smokiness. While this complex wine is approachable now, especially with some aeration, its track record for aging suggests that at least another five years of patience would be rewarded."
93 Points

"This ripe and polished red features forward yet dense cassis, kirsch and raspberry reduction notes that remain fresh and focused, with savory hints of licorice, fine herbs and tobacco gracing the long finish."

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

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,...
