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 has impressive color and intense aromas of red and black fruits such as blackberry and blackcurrant. There are also spicy notes along with liquorice on the finish. With great balance, this is a concentrated, well-structured wine with very pleasant silky tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"A lovely, dark and smoky red, displaying brambly blackberry, ripe plum and crème de cassis fruit flavors. Lush and velvety, with fine balance and dusty tannins on the dark chocolate–tinged finish. Drink now through 2015"

Style: Smooth & Supple
Typical Beaujolais...Fruit heavy! Aromas of Black Cherry, strawberry, and kool-aid. This wine was a medium bodied easy drinker. The fruit on the nose carried all the way through to the mellow finish with just a hint of earth. This fruity favorite is perfectly balanced, with crisp acidity, and soft almost non- existent tannins. The fruit is the show, and it's delivered with finesse.

Learn About Beaujolais

(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
