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: 13.8%

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 noble red blend is comprised primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, with Merlot, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot rounding out the vibrant and complex profile. The nose absolutely delights with unmistakable notes of juicy red plum, bramble berries, cranberries and sweet baking spices. Flavors of ripe berry, cherry and plum are balanced by soft, supple tannins and a generous, yet approachable mouth feel. This bottling is wonderful with a wide array of rich dishes, though velvety and silken enough on its own to be a sipping wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and lively, this offers pretty plum and floral aromas and flavors, echoing nicely on the lighter-style finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2013."
