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

This wine shows a deep ruby colour. The nose is an explosion of black fruits: cassis, blackberry and jammy red fruits, then leather and tobacco notes. On the palate, liquorice comes first and shows the young age of the wine, then come the aromas that we found on the nose added to slightly oaky notes, baked toasts and smoky aromas. Concentrated with a nice acidity, this wine has silky and round tannins which show a promising ageing potential. A Crozes Hermitage with a beautiful ageing capacity which is already pleasant now at its lovely fruity stage.

Critical Acclaim

"This juicy red delivers a focused beam of mulled cherry and currant fruit laced with sweet tobacco notes and a hint of iron. Very pure on the finish, with solid length. Drink now through 2011. 280 cases imported."
91 Points

"Saturated ruby color. Black raspberry and cherry pit aromas are complicated by notes of black pepper, olive and smoky herbs. A floral note comes up air and carries onto the palate, joining sweet red and dark berry flavors and undertones of smoke and minerals. A hint of sweet oak spice lingers on a very long, sappy finish. This could only be syrah."
