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 style of wine that winemaker Mary-Lou Nash makes slants definitively towards the New World, showing ripe, concentrated fruit flavors, deep, dark color, riper tannins and a plush, plump, round mouthfeel to her wines. The 2007 Oro and blend of 56% Shiraz and 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, respectively offers up ripe black fruit whiffs punctuated with a bit of savory tar and a floral spice to its aromatics. The palate is fuller bodied with some plump notes of dark plum and black berry ending on a bed of finer grained, tannins. Very fruit forwarded this has enough structure for some short aging over the next couple of years. In the mean time drink up and enjoy for its generous, lip smacking, delicious dark fruit flavors.

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
