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: 14.5%

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

Deep ruby in color with violet hues. The nose offers black and red berry aromas set off by touches of delicate spice such as black pepper, and other spices, with some hints of vanilla and chocolate resulting from French oak barrel-aging. The wine has soft tannins, with balanced acidity and a long finish in the mouth.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Vertice Apalta Vineyards, a blend of Carmenere and Syrah, is a glass-coating opaque purple with superb aromas of wood smoke, mineral, spice box, earth notes, and blueberry. This leads to a full-bodied, opulent wine with complex flavors, outstanding concentration, and several years of aging potential. Drink this lengthy effort from 2012 to 2026.

Ventisquero’s two icon wines are first class. John Duval, former head winemaker of Penfolds Grange, oversees their production. "

what a great bottle of wine - but let it sit for another year or so. Carmenere at it's finest.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
