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

Aromas of cedar, black pepper, anise, dried cherries, almond, and hints of sweet oak spice. The palate features fresh raspberries and cherries and mouthwatering acidity over subtle baking spice and cooking chocolate flavors. The finish is long and crisp, framed by fine-grained tannins.

The 2010 vintage is built to last, and Bethel Heights suspects these wines will age gracefully for well over a decade.

Critical Acclaim

"Silky, fresh and tangy with pure flavors of cherry and spice; long and complex with excellent balance. "
