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 color is a beautiful black with magenta hues.

The Nose, coming from a very good year, upon release this wine is very restrained and elegant. Spicy red fruits, subtle char and pepper with underlying charcuterie, grilled meats and soft mocha and vanillin.

A burst of juicy red fruits on the early palate that remains throughout. As the fruit builds the mocha notes become more prevalent and finally the firm but fine tannins kick in and hold the palate together, balanced with subtle vanillin oak.

Critical Acclaim

"Focused, juicy and vibrant, with raspberry, blackberry and pomegranate flavors, weaving in hints of violet, slate and loamy earth as the finish takes off smartly. Offers depth and intensity, without much weight. Best from 2012 through 2020."
93 Points

"Dark in colour and character, with dense black fruit, mocha and a splash of complexing thyme; the palate is thickly textured, extremely ripe and very chewy, with tar and licorice prominent on the finish. "
93 Points

"Deep purple-black in color, the 2009 Lily's Garden Shiraz gives ripe, expressive notes of blueberry pie, blackberry preserves and warm mulberries with hints of prunes, chocolate and licorice. Very full bodied and voluptuous on the palate, the generous flesh is well supported by a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long with lingering anise and dried berry notes. Delicious now, it should keep to 2017. "
