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 Winner's Wine from the The Winemakers, as seen on PBS, is a California produced, Rhone Valley inspired, red wine. Color: Mid to deep red with soft violet hues. Fresh, bright and crisp in color.

Aroma: Lovely soft red/blue fruit mélange with gobs of underlying spice and pepper.

Deep latent black fruits with hints of oaky vanilla, white pepper and violets.

Palate: Medium entry with tight, young fruit tannin supporting the red fruit palate with firm, almost lively crisp acidity to finish.

Bright fruit, fills the palate with a definite "food friendly" complexity, man this will be an absolute "hum dinger" with anything that involves Chorizo sausage.
