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 2006 Wolf Blass Yellow Label Shiraz is deep red in color. The nose shows notes of lifted, dark plum fruits, complemented with attractive spicy oak. The palate is full bodied with dark rich berry flavors and spice and long fine tannins on the finish.

Ideal with hearty meat dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Polished and appealing for its blackberry and spice flavors, persisting on the refreshingly open-textured finish. Drink now through 2011. 37,000 cases imported."
