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

This wine has an attractive deep color, the sign of a wine that is rich in phenolic compounds. On the nose, there are massive amounts of fruit aromas intermixed with very subtle spicy aromas, the sign of perfectly ripe grapes. The attack is silky and round, developing density but remaining fresh. Concentrated fruity flavors come through with lovely ripe tannins, providing good body on the mid-palate. The whole is both rich and silky; the length of flavors is amazing, leaving a finish packed with flavor, which is not at all drying. The ageing in barrel should provide extra aromatic complexity and roundness. The aim is to preserve the balance, freshness and juicy crispness of this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Very pretty and pure fruit here, with currants and berries. Full body, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Pretty balance and raciness. Better in 2015."
