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

Estate-grown fruit, limestone soil, Pétrus clones of Merlot and Cab. Unique micro-clime. Bordeaux-style wines with good acidity. The Tempranillo portion of Dignus helps makes the wine approachable at a younger age.

50% Tempranillo, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.

This hearty wine is best paired with rich dishes and dense flavors. Osso bucco, braised beef and pork shanks, spätzle with wild mushroom sauce, and bull and ox stews are all great matches for this wine. Both wine and food will help the other to reveal the depth of layered aromas and flavors each possesses.

Abundant scents of mocha, black cherries and blacker fruits jump from the glass of this flamboyant, medium to full-bodied, luscious wine. With lively acidity, rich, concentrated fruit, and a luxurious texture as well as length..."
