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

Intense purple in color, the nose opens after a few seconds and reveals toasted notes, freshly cooked bread, followed by fruit and floral aromas. The palate is concentrated and fleshy, revealing delicate tannins on the finish.

Blend: 86% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc , 2% Petit-Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"A finely made wine with big tannins equalled by the rich fruits. The wine has balanced wood character, acidity, great berry fruits, damsons and a firm, dry core that promises aging."
88 Points

"This ripe red displays a beam of mulled blackberry and black cherry fruit, with a modest lacing of tobacco and toast on the finish."
87 Points
