Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
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
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%.
"67" isplays extraordinarily complex aromas of cassis, pipe tobacco, sandalwood and wild boar brush . On the palate, the wine is exuberant, with fresh cassis, blackberry and cocoa tones The integrated fruit is framed by fine-grained tannins and rewards you with a clean finish.
"A wine with currants, berries and hints of smoke. Full body, with fine tannins and a chewy finish. Give it a year or two to mellow. Made from 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 5% Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec."
Blackberry and cassis dominate this wine, with some aromas of cocoa and spice. Very smooth and fun to drink! This is a great everyday drinking Cabernet blend. Open it up and let it breathe for about 15 to 20 minutes before you judge it, though. Braising shortribs? This is a great wine if you need something where half the wine goes into the food, and half goes into the cook!
Smooth & Supple
Good all around red for the price.
Big & Bold
I enjoy blends that make more from the grapes than the sum of the parts, and this wine qualifies. Excellent complexity and richness. Good finish. A bit rough up front before aeration. Let it breath fully for best enjoyment. If I could buy it for $15, I buy a case or two. At $20 the price seems average. I would expect this to age well.
