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 wine has dark ruby color. A bittersweet chocolate note accentuates jammy fruit aromas of raspberry, sweet cherry and plum. The wine is lush and sumptuous on the palate with chocolate, cherry and rich plum flavors.

The wine can be drunk now but will further evolve over the next 5 to 7 years. A bottle cellared over 5 years should always be decanted. Enjoy!

Best paired with chocolate desserts and blue veined cheeses such as gorgonzola, roquefort and stilton. Also pairs nicely alongside poached pears in red wine and chocolate cakes.

An open bottle develops a nutty, tawny port character over time and under proper care may be kept for up to 6 months.

tart and tangy at the start, but with 24 hrs to air (tho covered), it became smooth and silky.

I'm not an avid port fan but I can say this wine is not of great quality.
