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

While Carignan is widely grown in the Languedoc, the varietal is normally used for blending. The Domaine de Nizas 2006 Carignan Vieilles Vignes highlights this unique grape all on its own in a limited-production cuvée. This wine possesses intense aromas of red fruit, black olives and wild thyme, juniper and rosemary. On the palate, it is round and supple, with soft tannins and powerful flavors. Enjoy this Carignan now or over the next five years.

The strong personality and flavors of this Carignan pair perfectly with hearty dishes such as game in wine sauce, braised duck with olives and roast pork.
