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

Brilliant light straw with a slight golden cast. Intriguing notes of spiced apple, honey pineapple, and warm citrus are highlighted by vanilla and toast. Full and intense flavor of roasted pear and nectarine are warmed with toast and spice. Clean delicate fruit balanced with acidity builds to a long, lingering finish.
