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

Overall, concentration and wonderful flavors of cassis and berries best describes the 2007 CYRUS. Aromas of black cherry, plum, spice, oak, mint and vanilla fill the glass. There is good entry and balance with flavors of berry, cocoa, mint, coffee and cedar. This rich wine has big structure and a long finish. The intense concentration and great balance will allow this wine to age gracefully for 10-15 years.

Critical Acclaim

"A deliciously easy wine to drink now. Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s rich and spicy in cherry and blackberry jam, chocolate, red currant and cedar flavors, with soft tannins and an herbaceous taste of the earth. As sweet as the fruit is, the wine finishes totally dry."
