Alcohol By Volume: 14.3%

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

This wine has a complete harmony in color, with a deep, bright red combined with violets hints. Characterized by spicy aromas, plenty of vanilla and coco at the nose. The mouth has sweet tannins with a strong presence of spices from oak and the varietal character of syrah. All these notes give elegance and complexity to this wine of good persistent.

Critical Acclaim

"Extremely ripe and concentrated but arguably a bit too massive for its own good. That said, we love the wine’s tobacco, cassis and inky qualities, but worry a little about the lemony oak character and overall potency. Deep as midnight in terms of flavors, with black fruits galore setting up a richly packed, ultraripe finish. New world to the max but very tasty and rich."
91 Points

"This is a monster: Ripe blackberry scents and the chocolate richness of oak project across the palate with succulent, decadent sweetness. Meaty. leathery notes seem to rise out of the rustic texture."
