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 2010 includes a small amount of Petite Sirah to broaden the mouthfeel on the wine and add a little more dark fruit to the palate. There are aromas of raspberry, plum, black cherry, and citrus. In the glass there are flavors of plum, cranberry, black cherry, and classic spicy black pepper. The 2010 is a restrained vintage and will reward those with the patience to cellar a few bottles

Style: Smooth & Supple
A good smooth table wine..some sediment in the bottle but that has never bothered me. Good for the price. Recommended. I would buy again at the sale price.

I opened a bottle last night and drank with lasagna. I was very surprised at how delicious this wine is. Yes, there is sedimentation but the booming berry and refined finish make it more than worth the sticker. Just bought a bunch more.
