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.

Winemaker's Notes

The wine has a dark plum colour, with a red rim. The nose shows intense notes of blueberries, black currants, christmas cake and cedar with underlying hints of toasted oak, lead pencil and mint. On the palate there is a great purity of fruit showing intense dark fruit notes with a hint of mocha and spice. The wine finishes with firm dry tannins and a lingering taste reminiscent of fennel and mocha.

Enjoy with grilled veal chops or roast pork or a fantastic piece of steak.

Critical Acclaim

"Good medium red. Redcurrant, raspberry, tobacco leaf and an herbal element on the nose and palate, complicated by pepper, woodsmoke and chocolatey oak. Vinous and aromatic but a bit tart, showing modest flesh and intensity but good varietal character. Gained a bit of depth as it opened in the glass, but the dusty, light tannins are accompanied by a repeating greenness on the back."

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
