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: 14.0%

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

Aromas are of wild berry fruits, like blackberry and dried plum which then yield to richer impressions of candied fruit and dark chocolate. Nuances of vanilla and tobacco leaf. Rich and full-bodied in the mouth, this wine has tannins that are perfectly balanced and well integrated. A lively acidity brightens its fruit. The long-lived, delicious finish is infused with aromatic, ripe fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Squarely in the Italian camp, with a sour cherry component to the mix of flavors, including black currant and raspberry. This red also shows good acidity and firm yet well-integrated tannins, with fine length. Best from 2013 through 2020."
