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

Like previous vintages, this wine is a full-flavored intense wine with drink-now softness. Showing rich, ripe berried flavor with hints of spice and soft tannins, this Shiraz has the characteristics which makes this region famous.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe, with a dark hue to the color and flavors, offering smoky, black olive-tinged black cherry and spice flavors on a medium-weight frame. Drink now through 2013. 1,400 cases made."
