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: 14.0%

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

Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec has an intense red color with violet hints. Medium-bodied with an elegant touch of smoke and vanilla from the oak aging. It has a velevety texture, supple tannins and a spicy, full finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The concentrated blueberry, black plum and cassis notes are supported by fresh acidity, with layers of wildflower, pepper and mineral expanding on the finish."
89 Points

"Dusty dark-fruit aromas are lusty and full of oaky notes including sawdust and chocolate. This value-priced winner is full, round, saturated and generous on the palate, where savory, resiny black-fruit flavors finish woody in flavor and firm in feel."
88 Points

A beautiful wine when all of the gang comes over for a barbecue, the 2011 Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec plays smooth and fine on the palate. As with most malbecs, there are no hard edges. You'd better have plenty on hand when your guests show up.
