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

Intense, deep ruby to purple. Rich and dense, full of ripe fruits and sweet spicy aromas. Modern and well-balanced; remarkable structure tempered by silky tannins - concentrated aromas of berries and chocolate give it a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Solengo shows the pedigree of this great vintage. Violets, tar, smoke, licorice and plums burst from the glass. Vibrantly nuanced and beautifully articulated, the 2010 impresses for its striking balance and refined, sophisticated personality. This is one of the very best Solengos I can remember tasting. The style is rich and highly expressive, but with no excess weight. In 2010, Solengo is 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot, 20% Merlot and 10% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030."
96 Points

"Impressive aromas of blackberries, coffee and hints of leather. Full body, with chewy tannins and an intense finish. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. This is a longtime favorite. Needs two or three years to come together. "
