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

93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Merlot, 2.5% Shiraz, 2% Mourvedre This delicious Cabernet bursts onto the palate with bright, juicy flavors of blackberry, cassis, licorice, and cherry intertwined with subtle vanilla, tobacco, and spice characteristics. Firm yet accessible tannins make this wine a great accompaniment to grilled meats, burgers, and shortribs.

Critical Acclaim

"Red berry fruit, cloves and pepper lead on this sultry Cabernet from winemaker Marc Kent. On the palate, complex but easy-to-drink layers of chocolate, tobacco, subtle smoke and red berry dominate. Tannin structure allows for aging."

At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
