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

Brooding but approachable with spicy cherry, violets and loamy earth on the nose. In the mouth the wine has a bright and supple texture that is followed by flavors of crushed raspberry and darker fruits, with smoky blackberry flavors, mineral and subtle hints of mocha toastiness. Soft, fine-grained tannins lead to a lengthy, clean finish.
