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

We use organically grown grapes from the heart of the Napa Valley to produce this vibrant Merlot that has aromas of blueberry, vanilla bean and mint, and was made to be enjoyed with friends on any occasion.

Great nose! I knew it was going to taste good just by the smell! Drink now! Don't save for later. Just a little sweet, not bitter or sour. Not a sharp alcohol flavor.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making.
