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: 14.7%

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

John Duval, formerly of Australia's iconic Penfolds Grange, chose the Columbia Valley as his "Sequel" for the continuation of his life's work with Syrah.

Dark, lush and layered with blackberry, ripe plum and blueberry flavors complimented by aromas of black tea and incense. The wine offers great depth and richness with a silky texture and vibrant finish.

Blend: 98% Syrah and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"Delivers a lively mouthful of blueberry, plum, floral and white pepper flavors that cascade around one another through the long, vivid finish. Ripe and round. Drink now through 2017. 1,950 cases made."
93 Points

"Pungent and spicy, dark and brooding, this wine brings it with deep, sappy berry fruit and overtones of meat and garrigue, all with muscle and verve. Tannins are firm and hard, showing some ripe stem and earth flavors, and plenty of barrel toast. Muscular and warm, this Syrah walks the line perfectly between the Rhône and Barossa."
93 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, smoked meat, pepper and an ineffable floral quality. Then fat, concentrated and surprisingly dry and classic, with palate-staining flavors of black raspberry, blackberry and pepper. Offers superb breadth with a light touch. This very youthful wine finishes impressively long, with a late note of hard candy."
93 Points

"The 2007 Sequel was made by Australian John Duval. It is made up of 98% Syrah and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 18 months in 65% new French oak and 5% 300-liter American oak “hogsheads”. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it emits an expressive bouquet of smoked meat, bacon, lavender, sage, blueberry, and plum. On the palate it is plush and layered suggesting readiness for near-term drinking. However, there is ample underlying structure for those wanting to wait for a more aged character. This lengthy effort should provide pleasure through 2022."
92 Points

"Nicely focused, keenly varietal and proving that a wine can be, at once, both ripe and structured, Sequel's layered look at Syrah is a concentrated, complex and well-composed effort that shows plenty of potential for further improvement with age. That said, its polish and seamless construction afford it plenty of near-term appeal, and those who are simply unable to wait for the four or five years it deserves will find it a most handsome mate to roast leg of lamb even now."

There are not enough o's in smooooth to describe Sequel! It is in my top 3 wine list! I only bring it out when there are true wine lovers in the room because I don't want to waste it on anyone who won't appreciate the intense depth and lush feel of this wine. Deep, dark, intense nose, truly a SEXY wine!
