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%.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2002 Pandora (a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) boasts explosive notes of kirsch liqueur, a dense ruby/purple color, considerable elegance, wonderful sweetness as well as ripeness, and a superb 55-second finish. Arguably the finest Pandora produced by John Alban to date..."
95 Points

"Medium ruby. High-toned, slightly porty aromas of black raspberry and dark chocolate. Extremely dense and concentrated, with high-toned flavors of raspberry, violet and spices, plus a whiff of meat. This conveys an impression of great energy and definition, and yet it also comes across as seamless. Finishes superlong, with a porty sweetness mitigated by powerful grip."
93 Points

"Dark, saturated color, with exotic aromas of crushed blackberry, black cherry and blueberry fruit that's intense and concentrated, with an underlying core of chewy, dusty tannins. Not for the faint of heart, this wine shows how good Grenache can be. Contains 15 percent Syrah."
