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

Dark ruby. Smoky blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with subtle spice and floral scents adding complexity. Fleshy and sweet, with deep dark berry compote flavors, velvety texture and bright, spicy lift. Finishes with very good, sweet persistence and a lingering blueberry quality.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm and focused, this is distinctive for its well-defined plum and blueberry flavors, which feature graphite and green olive shadings. Everything comes together harmoniously on the vibrant finish. Drink now through 2019."
