Wine Style Guide

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: 13.5%

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

A rich, well-crafted wine with delicious ripe berry fruits and aromas of ripe peach, plum and apricot. A harmonious and exciting wine with refreshing acidity, a full red colour and smoky mineral and balsamic elements. Good, long and rich with the added dimension of ripe fruit. Ideal as a partner to goat cheese, meat dishes, spicy stews.

15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Garnatxa, 25%Merlot, 20% Syrah, and 10% Tempranillo.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Portal Red is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, Merlot, Tempranillo, and Syrah aged for six months in French, American, and Hungarian oak. Dark ruby-colored, the nose exhibits earth notes, cedar, tobacco, cassis, cherry, and blackberry. Ripe and sweet on the palate, licorice, dried herbs and mineral notes make an appearance leading to a lengthy, pure, fruit-filled finish. Drink this tasty effort over the next four years. "
