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

Intensely deep in color, almost black tinged with purple. Very open on the nose with concentrated aromas of violets, blackberries and black cherries all meshed with savory flavors, coffee and dark chocolate; supple youthful tannins and superb length.

Critical Acclaim

"This supple, integrated Lagrein shows fine-grained tannins and fresh, juicy acidity, bolstering flavors of currant, blackberry and damson plum. Medium-bodied, with hints of mineral, dried herbs and anise, ending with a lightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made."
