Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Medium to full bodied dry red. Flavors of dark berries, anise and mint. Toasty oak integrates nicely. Smooth soft tannins, juicy fleshy palate, round flavorsome finish.
"The purple-colored 2007 Bremerview Shiraz, a wine aged in oak for 12 months. The nose exhibits spice box, cedar, game, blueberry, and a hint of mint. Layered, savory, intense, and well-balanced, this lengthy effort will be fun to drink over the next 4 years. It is a super value in Shiraz."
The Wine Advocate
"Inky violet. Exotically perfumed bouquet evokes blueberry and boysenberry liqueur, sandalwood, dried violet and cracked pepper. Lush, seamless and gently sweet, offering vivid dark berry flavors and no obvious tannins. The blueberry note repeats on the finish, which is tangy, focused and very persistent."
