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 nose exhibits savoury, spicy and earthy aromas with plum, berry and herbal notes. The palate is focused and concentrated with soft tannins supporting succulent fruits through to a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Elegant and graceful, with pretty dried lavender, Earl Grey tea and vibrant white pepper aromatics that give way to plush plum and raspberry flavors and white truffle highlights. Detailed and focused, the flavors linger on the long finish. Drink now through 2022."
93 Points

"Hazy medium red. Slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry, red cherry, peony and blood orange. A pure, concentrated midweight with a savory quality and very good energy to its red berry and spice flavors. Finishes quite suave, with sweet, easygoing tannins and sneaky, tactile persistence."
91 Points
