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

The nose has a fantastic range of blueberries, damson plums and cherries. Also there are intriguing smells of fresh tea, lavender and Turkish delight. The aromas give way to a palate chock full of intense, fresh and uplifting powerful pure blueberries and strong red fruits. The tannins are significant but not overwhelming as it gives the feeling of dark, bitter chocolate supported by blueberry coulis.

Critical Acclaim

"Glass-staining violet. Exotic, expressive aromas and flavors of candied dark berries, cola, licorice and potpourri. Lush, palate-caressing boysenberry and cherry compote flavors are complicated by floral pastille and spice notes. A bitter chocolate quality emerges on the long, spicy finish, which features a strong note of dark berry liqueur. "
