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

Dark red brick in color. The nose is filled with wonderful aromas of cassis, toasty cedar and black cherry. The elegant mouth-feel has a delicate balance of ripe fruit notes, cassis, and hints of bell pepper, with well integrated oak. The finish is classic Cabernet Franc--fruit driven with a fine ripe tannin structure. This is a beautiful wine that is well-focused and very food-friendly.
