Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Big, full-bodied, deep black color. Strong structure in the mouth, soft structured finish, with a hint of sweet oak.
"Jeremy Nickel, son of the late Gil Nickel, who founded Far Niente, farms this ten-acre vineyard in Oakville's Halter Valley, between the Mayacamas and Vaca mountains.

This is pungent and savory, a wine to cellar for several years before decanting with lamb."
