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

A special Blend of two sakes, carefully selected by our brew master to give a unique style that is rich and complex. Hints of honeydew, papaya, anise, and roasted nuts, full-bodied with a long, smooth finish. Comes in a traditional "tokkuri" container which is similar to the ones used when purchasing sake in the old days.
