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 wine is dark ruby red, with attractive purple tones. The nose, elegant and layered, reveals pure and delicate aromas of ripe cassis, blackberries and wild strawberries, nicely associated with vanilla, spices and coffee beans. The mouth shows outstanding balance, great acidity, elegance, freshness and exceptional persistence. The tannins are ripe, round, well condensed and silky, enhancing the dense and fleshy character of the year. A brilliant wine, constant and precise in its character, with finesse and harmony.

Critical Acclaim

"A svelte red, with excellent focus and length to the powerful dark plum, slate, dark currant and dried blackberry flavors. The black olive notes grow in intensity and join bittersweet chocolate accents on the long, well-framed finish."
