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

Columbine Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. A wine of balance, finesse and ageability. On the nose, it has blackberry and coffee aromas. On the palate, it's full-bodied with black cherries and has outstanding length.

Critical Acclaim

"The red fruit in this Cabernet feels pure, free of wood influence or superripeness. It's just the clear taste of the grape as it grows in the Maipo Valley, herbal notes playing on the cherry and blueberry flavors. A red to drink now, with grilled ribs.
