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

Presenting a deep purple color with glistening cherry hues. It has alluringly fruity and powerful aromas reminiscent of lush raspberries and ripe, black cherries, delicately balanced by a subtle minerality and notes of cinnamon. In the palate it is a beautifully full-bodied and fresh wine that reveals a silky structure leading to a textured and long lasting finish.

Ideal with most Mediterranean dishes, especially with pasta, risottos, cheese. It is also an excellent accompaniment to poultry and game birds.

Critical Acclaim

"Focused yet dense, this modern red shows vibrant flavors of currant, licorice, black pepper and smoke. The structure is solid, yet the wine remains lithe and lively. Needs food to unwind. Drink now through 2017. Smart Buy"
91 Points

"The 2007 Caliza is a blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Petit Verdot aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. Toasty black fruits, violets, espresso, and licorice inform the bouquet of this dense, purple/black, layered wine. It opens in the glass to reveal savory blackberry and blueberry flavors, moderate tannin, and plenty of spice, especially pepper. This well-proportioned wine is surprisingly light on its feet and an outstanding value to boot. "
