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 deep-ruby Merlot opens with aromas of dark cherry, plum, dried herbs and tea. On the palate, it is dry and full-bodied, with layers of black currant, cherry, bittersweet chocolate and tobacco supported by bright acid and broad tannins. The finish is long and memorable.

This wine is delightful when paired with rich and hearty pasta dishes or succulent meats. Try it with grilled beef tenderloin and wild mushroom ragout, or with bold Italian pasta slathered in a meaty tomato-based sauce.

Blend: 83% Merlot, 12% Petite Sirah, 5% Petit Verdot

But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
