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

Exceptional purple color. In the nose, the aromas are dominated by red plums, morello cherries, figs, dried apricots and a delicate perfume of violets. All this is harmonized with its oak ageing, which grants it elegant notes of vanilla, chocolate, toast and caramel. This is a full-bodied wine of great structure and concentration. Its excellent balance between acidity and rounded ripe tannins results in a wine with personality. It has a pleasant and lingering finish. Serving suggestions: 61°F. Ideal to pair with succulent and spiced red meats.

Critical Acclaim

"A little charred and hard on the nose, with licorice, pepper, mint and coffee aromas. The palate is perfectly balanced and quite generous, with massive blackberry and chocolate flavors. Spicy and long on the finish, with moca notes. Definitely a ripe, big-boned wine. "
