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

This wine opens with effusive floral and spice aromas characteristic of the 2011 vintage. Present are the lifted perfumes of hyacinth, linden blossom and carnation along with spicy Satsuma mandarin, tea tree, fennel and crushed boysenberry. The palate is expansive, expressive and also connective; showing a completeness and comfort within its own skin. On the palate there are notes of passion fruit, violet pastille and tayberry, along with hints of cinnamon stick and a flinty minerality bundled in a succulent, mouthwatering middle. The tannins are matte with a velveteen quality and the finish is all freshness, lingering and clean.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby. Dark berries and cola on the pungent, spice-accented nose. Smooth and open-knit, with refreshingly piquant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Finishes on a gently sweet note, with a dusting of tannins adding a firm edge."
