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

Scintilla is a robust wine, exhibiting aromas of black cherry and caramel. It boasts a pleasing flavor profile of cherry soda, chocolate-covered fruit, and a hint of linalool. Brilliant in hue, this is a wine filled with a mixture of tart red fruit and voluptuous black fruit. A wine well suited for rich food.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium ruby color; deep briary aromas with dark raspberry and cranberry notes; rich mix of dark fruit flavors, with tea and cola notes; fine grained tannins; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, dark fruit-driven Pinot with very fine tannns. Needs time to open up."

Found it to be light bodied with little fruit and short finish. A nice wine for the price though.

I'm not usually a fan of Pinot Noirs, but this one was quite decent - much better than the more expensive Pali Keefer Ranch.

Only opened on bottle of the 2 I bought. The nose was horrible! It tasted ok. It's on its way out. Would not buy again. Would like a refund.
