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

Red intense color with very ripe berry aromas. In the mouth it is strong, round, elegant and has balsamic and ripe picota cherry aftertastes. The tannins are smooth, persistent, and pleasant to the palate. Optimum acidity for a long conservation of the wine in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

"This expressive red offers berry, spice, tobacco and cedar notes on a lithe frame, with firm tannins and bright acidity. Shows good density, yet remains vibrant and focused, in the traditional style."
92 Points

"A bit thick and raisiny on first take, but with airing and swirling it becomes fresher. The palate is rich and rooty, with cocoa, prune, earth notes and tea-like flavors. Ripe and smooth on the finish, with no tannic backlash or lazy oak. Ripe as can be but still lively; drink now through 2018."
