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

This wine starts with a sweet aroma followed by dill and cold ashes (a consistent aromatic in the blocks Torii Mor gets from Temperance Hill Vineyard), followed by dark cherry and oak spice notes. The flavors show rich earthiness with dark cherries, dark chocolate, and a long cigar box-oak spice finish. The mouth-feel is thick, rich and medium sweet with a spicy finish. The texture shows rich round tannins which show a little dryness in the long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Light, crisp and focused, offering pretty raspberry at the core and hints of wet earth, ash and pepper circling the edges, with it all persisting nicely on the finish."
