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

This savory, Rhône-inspired Shiraz combines juicy flavors of wild berry, black cherry, and brambly fruit with elements of earth, dark chocolate, pepper, and exotic spice. Pair this lip smacking bottling - a perennial "Best Buy"/ "Best Value" with grilled or braised meats, game dishes, or roast leg of lamb with Provencal spices.

Critical Acclaim

"With 14 months in oak, there’s some beautiful mocha and clove spice throughout that integrates beautifully with the dark cherry, bramble, licorice and meaty notes on the nose and palate. The texture is creamy and the flavors full, with firm tannins and a good kick of black pepper on the long finish. Could use some time to balance out; try in a year or two."
