Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

The nose displays sweet fruit, there's a liqueur-like quality to the fruit. Very rounded and ripe, notes of violet, lovely pure dark fruits, and sweet fruit. The palate is lush and intensely concentrated with good acidity and a nice tannic structure. There's a bit of minerality, too. Intense and delicious.

50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon & 20% Bonarda

Critical Acclaim

"Floral and attractive on the bouquest, with citrus peel, light raspberry, cassis and lift. The palate runs tannic and fresh, with crisp black cherry and kirsch flavors that flow seamlessly into layered tobacco and mild herbal notes. A sophisticated red made from Malbec, Cabernet and Bonarda."
