Alcohol By Volume: 14.4%

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 2007 Genesis Meritage offers aromas of brambly blackberry and fig, with earthy nutmeg spice and vanilla. It's velvety smooth on the palate, with fresh blueberry, huckleberry and zesty spice wrapped around earth notes and cassis. The finish is long. Pair with prime rib, grilled pork loin, or lamb roast with garlic-herb crust. Blend: 49% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"2007 Columbia Valley Genesis Meritage (Best Buy) With scents of plum compote and violets, this merlot-cabernet blend is dark and inky at the outset. After a day it takes on merlot's more red-fruited inflections. It has the build and concentration for aging, and at this price, it's worth buying a case to enjoy over the course of the next few years."
