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 bouquet of ripe fruit, blackcurrant coulis, strawberry jam, spice, and violets shows that this is a great Vacqueyras. Smooth and rich on the palate with soft tannin that marries well with the liquorice flavors. Very long aftertaste confirming this wine's character and elegance.

This Vacqueyras makes a perfect accompaniment to veal chops with rosemary, or even chocolate mousse. Best served at 18°C. This wine is enjoyable young, but has an ageing potential of 5 to 7 years.

Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre

Critical Acclaim

"Fleshy and forward, with succulent plum and blackberry fruit laced with black tea and dark chocolate notes. This has a nice smoldering finish. Drink now through 2011."
