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

Garnet Colour. Complex aromas of blackberry, spice, plum and licorice give way to a subtle integration of smoky, vanillin oak. The palate is full of fleshy dark cherry and bramble fruit with dark chocolate nuances and savoury notes of leather and spice in the finish. The oak integrates well with the supple fruit, excellent tannin structure and balanced acidity all contribute to giving the wine great length and intensity.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and open-textured, not weighty but focused and dense, with dark berry, plum and spice flavors, lingering nicely on the finish against fine tannins and a bay leaf note. Drink now through 2014"
90 Points

"2006 Noble Baron Shiraz is made from 100% Shiraz, matured in new and older French oak for 24 months. Very deep garnet-black colored, it has pronounced aromas of macerated blackberries, mulberries, choco-mint, cassia and loam. Crisp with a medium level of very fine tannins, this is a full-bodied, well balanced Shiraz that gives a long warm berry finish. Drink it now to 2016+."
90 Points

"Full-bodied and velvety in texture, this wine shows plenty of oak, but it's high-class oak, all cedar, spice and vanilla, wrapped around a core of casis. with some brighter fruit tones sneaking in as well. Drink now-2015."
90 Points

"Vivid ruby. Sexy, expressive aromas of dark berry liqueur, smoky Indian spices and tobacco, plus a whiff of vanilla. Sweet, palate-caressing blackberry and cherry-cola flavors are framed by supple tannins, which give the wine shape and back-end grip. Showing very good complexity now but the wine's structure suggests that it will repay another six or seven years of patience."
