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 2010 REDS is deeply colored, aromatic, and deep, but with a llift to the finish. This description mirrors the three traditional components of REDS: petite syrah, carignane, and zinfandel. Petite syrah is deeply colored – is there any other varietal which makes such a black wine? Carignane imparts a white pepper, minerally component, which is distinctly aromatic and shines through the fruitiness of zinfandel, which itself provides the backbone and depth of REDS.

This is a prettier wine than those of the past couple of years, and accordingly matches with a wider range of foods. While it will drink nicely with traditional REDS fare like pizza and burgers, the 2010 also goes great with milder cheeses and medium bodies pasta dishes.
