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

Inviting blueberry aromas couple with cedar and slate notes on the nose. The rich, developed palate presents mulberry and currant with well integrated tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"A cabernet with classical restraint, this elegant red displays an old-school sense of proportion. Its black plum flavors and clean velvety texture feel sleek, driven by polished tannins. The finish brings to mind purple flowers. A posh red for beef bourguignon."
92 Points

"Velvety, generous and open-textured, offering pear-accented currant and mint flavors that linger effectively on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2016. 4,100 cases made."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
