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%.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Zinfandel Varozza Vineyard emerges from the glass with plush dark cherries, plums, spices and licorice. It is one of the most harmonious wines in the lineup. The balance of fruit, acidity and structure is terrific. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the rich, textured finish. "
93 Points

"Sleek and appealingly rustic, featuring black raspberry and toasty vanilla aromas and ripe, savory flavors of black cherry, smoky pepper and sage. Finishes with briary tannins. Drink now through 2017. "
92 Points

"Full red. Spicy aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and licorice. Concentrated and sharply delineated, with dark berry and pepper flavors showing a building spiciness. Very firmly built zinfandel, finishing with good grip and subtle persistence. I'd wait a year or two and then enjoy it over the following six years."
