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: 14.4%

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 complex wine offers layers of aromas, including intense black cherry, colas, blackberry, ripe strawberry and a touch of sweet black tea. Its polished textures glide onto the palate, offering abundant blueberry, strawberry and ripe black plum flavors throughout a wonderfully persistent and deftly balanced finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A tantalizing mix of perfectly ripe, juicy raspberry and tangy black cherry flavors, with a rich, powerful loamy element of fresh earth, clay and spice. Licorice, kirsch and spice box notes detail the wine, which is delicate and layered, with a creamy texture."
93 Points

"This is quite a good Pinot Noir, although despite the tannin-acid tightness it’s not likely to improve beyond 2011. It’s dry and silky and delicious in cherry, cola, spice and sandalwood flavors, and there’s even a touch of chocolate. "
90 Points

"This fleshy, fairly full-bodied working is very much made in the high-extract, high-ripeness style, and, while its strength may not lie in refinement, it is long on both richness and very deep fruit. For all of its considerable substance, it is never heavy and sports fine acid balance, and, if just a bit of heat creeps in at the finish, it is its long-lasting, ripe-cherry fruit that outdistances all else and lets it partner with savory roasts."
