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 2007 Onyx boasts a complex nose abounding in black cherry, plum and berries with intriguing notes of smoke, rose petals, creamy chocolate, tea and leather. The palate offers red cherry, cola and roasted plum flavors alongside brisk acidity and dry, chocolatey tannins which sustain lengthy finish. Lush as it is now, three to five years in the cellar will allow for the palate to open up and match the nose in complexity. Decanting for up to an hour is also recommended.

The youthful structure of this wine calls out for the rich, rustic dishes of southern France; a salad of Puy lentils with duck confit, white bean ragoût enriched with bacon and sausage or mushroom risotto. As age brings out the wealth of secondary flavors, let them shine by pairing with flavorful meats, like game and dry-aged ribeye steaks, simply prepared.

Blend: 50% Merlot, 30% Malbec, 11% Tannat, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
