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: 14.9%

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 heady nose of bright red fruits and Asian spice complement the wine's full, round texture. Full flavors of cherry, dry cranberry and blueberry last through the long, fruit-filled finish. Native yeasts fermented half the lots, adding balance to the complexity of the Burgundian yeast also employed.

Critical Acclaim

"Presents a bold, ripe mix of plum and blueberry flavors that are pure and focused, gaining depth and length. Ends with a dash of loamy earth."
92 Points

"Just delicious, showing the promise of the 2010 vintage. The wine is ripe and intense in red cherry, cranberry and spice flavors, with a rich jacket of smoky oak. Feels like pure silk, while notable alcohol provides a boost of warmth for a chilly evening."

Style: Smooth & Supple
Fruit forward but well structured, this wine never disappoints. Notes of cherry and plum come through and maybe some strawberry. Features a nice mouthfeel and just a hint of spice on the finish. Very smooth wine, but bigger than most Pinots and has an exquisite ruby color. Excellent pricepoint for the Green Valley as well.
