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: 12.5%

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

As refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine opens with vibrant and explosive aromas of cherry and raspberry that leap from the glass. Flavors mirror aromas of red and dark fruits, hibiscus and melon highlighted by leathery cigar and tobacco overtones. The mouthfeel is soft, juicy and well-rounded with fresh acidity. The velvety tannins focus on a silky mouthwatering finish, inviting the second sip. Meant to drink young.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and straightforward, this wine's strawberry scent is grounded by a fine, earthy background. The whole-cluster fermentation reflects the style of a Beaujolais in its simple attack and brisk acidity. A charming red for chilling.
