Style: Light & Fruity

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: 13.9%

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

The 2009 Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark purple color with ruby red tones. The nose is full of ripe red fruits, sweet spice and a touch of tobacco. The mouthfeel shows red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cedar and espresso bean. The finish is soft and sweet, with finely grained tannins adding structure and length.

Critical Acclaim

"Lightly floral and decidedly fruity, this is rich in cherry flavors that give it a fresh, clean air. A selection from organically farmed vineyards in Mendoza, the fruit is pure and direct, with enough tannin for an Argentine asado."

I was impressed with the smoothness, and great quality of this Cab, and the price is unbeatable. I usually spend double the price for my everyday Cabs, and was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have to compromise flavor at this price point.

Was not as heavy as we usually like our Cabs to be. We like our Cabs almost opaque, this was too light. The taste had nothing horribly wrong. It was very simple and to me it tasted more like a cheaper Pinot or Malbec. Sweeter than a cab should be. I liked it but know many better wines in this price range. I don't need to buy it again for a few years but would if i found myself with in a store with limited selection. I also would buy again just because of the sustainability practices. I have to give them some points there! Good wine to introduce white wine drinkers or beginner wine drinkers to red.

After being open for an hour it has a nice aroma of berry fruit with just a hint of vegetal. The taste starts with fruit then has that South American earthy flavor. Finish is dry and medium length

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
