Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 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 2008 Killerman's Run Shiraz Grenache is brick red in color with youthful crimson hues. The nose reveals silky notes of cherry fruits, older oak flavors and dark chocolate that meld together seamlessly. Shiraz and Grenache combine beautifully on the rich palate laying down a round and textural experience redolent of dark cherries, chocolate notes and well integrated quality oak finishing smooth and persistent.

60% Shiraz, 40% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

"Inky purple. Sexy aromas of blueberry and boysenberry, with a touch of cracked pepper adding vibrancy. Lush and creamy in texture, with lively, open-knit dark fruit flavors that are approachable right now. Finishes with good snap and sweet persistence."
89 Points

"The 2008 Killerman’s Run Shiraz Grenache reveals a medium-deep garnet-purple color. The nose gives baked cherry and black raspberry notes over a core of kirsch, stewed tea and spice box. The full-bodied palate offers voluptuous, ripe fruit, medium-high acid, a medium level of velvety tannins and lingering berry preserve flavors. Drink this one now though 2014. "
