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%.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Petite Sirah Pesenti is one of the great ones I tasted in this vintage. Inky bluish/purple to the rim with notes of camphor, incense, blueberry, blackberry, crushed rocks, and acacia flowers, this wine is pure, rich, full-bodied, and massively endowed. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 20-25 years.
Range: 93-95"
95 Points

"Saturated ruby. Brooding aromas of black fruits, pepper, mocha, truffle and tree bark. Fat, thick, full and sweet; a powerful wine with impressive volume and huge black fruit flavors. Finishes very long, with thoroughly ripe tannins."
