        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%.

        Wine Style Guide

        Light & Fruity
        Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
        Smooth & Supple
        Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
        Earthy & Spicy
        Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
        Big & Bold
        Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
