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

Medium red with purple hues. The nose shows attractive blueberry, plum and strawberry fruit characters, with Pinot gaminess and spice. Toasty oak is evident, providing additional complexity. A medium bodied wine with supple texture and a fine tannin finish. Dark red fruit characters of cherry and blueberry dominate, with savory stalkiness and toasty oak evident in the background. The wine has excellent structure and length and will reward careful cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium red. Deep cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by toasty oak and white pepper. A firm, juicy midweight with good depth to its bitter cherry and dark berry flavors and subtle vanillin sweetness. Finishes youthfully firm, with good spicy persistence. Give this at least a couple years to unwind. "
89 Points

"Bright and tangy, with raspberry and black cherry notes against black olive flavors, lingering tightly. Best after 2008. 1,900 cases made. "
