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

Deep garnet red in color with aromas of fragrant ripe cherry, spicy toast and violet highlights overlying rich plum and savory notes. The palate is characterized by a sweet ripe plum and cherry fruit with spicy complexity and a generous mid palate. Firm yet fine tannin structure balanced with concentration of flavor yielding to a silky chocolate finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Showy, with a blast of raspberry and strawberry flavors, plus hints of mint and other herbal notes, against lively acidity and crisp tannins. Best from 2011 through 2015. 1,500 cases imported. "
