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%.

90 Points

"Brisk and lemony with the firm snap of a Vinho Verde, this crisp white's lemon-lime flavors are cleanly delivered, its mineral tang a fine foil for a plate of razor clams.
Best Buy"
