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 2012 Bernard Baudry Les Granges is a fruity wine ready for drinking in its youth. A smooth and lively wine, the 20 year old Cabernet Franc vines are 100% hand-harvested and aged in cement and wood cuves. Aromas of spiced berries are accompanied by silky, chocolaty, wine-soaked flavors with a long, lingering finish.

Blend: 100% Cabernet Franc
