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

The 2006 Arcus Estate opens with intense floral and fruit aromas of violet and rose petal, fresh black cherry and red currant. The palate is generous, confectionary and concentrated with notes of black cherries and raspberries, star anise and mulling spices. Saturated with fruit on the palate, this wine shows great depth and succulence with plush, integrated tannins and persisting notes of fl oral spice and fresh berries.

Expressive and concentrated, the 2006 Arcus Estate is open and vibrant now, however may improve with proper cellaring over the next 3 to 8 years.

Critical Acclaim

"A very pretty and airy red berry fruit nose nuanced by intense briar and earth notes that complement well the moderately rich and full flavors that are supported by dusty and ripe tannins that are presently edgy but this should harmonize over the next 3 years."
