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

The "Rare" designation is used for material dating back over 100 years. As this is not a scientific process it is not possible to put a definitive age on the wine but one taste will tell you it is not from this century.

While these wines are seen as after dinner drinks, try serving them as an aperitif. And a bottle, once opened, will keep for some months without deteriorating, providing it is recorked after each serving.

Critical Acclaim

"The NV Rosewood Vineyards Rare Muscadelle has a deep brown color with a hint of green in the rim. The nose has a complex, oxidative, almost oloroso character giving notes of roasted walnuts, dark chocolate, burnt coffee and toffee. The palate is so crisp in acidity that the unbelievable level of sweetness and viscosity is infinitely drinkable. Layer upon layer of spice and nut flavors develop into the very long finish."
98 Points

"Incredibly concentrated and intense, this dark coffee-colored wine coats the glass and palate with waves of luxuriously sweet, raisiny flavors. Layers of complexity follow in the form of rancio, dried fig, and molasses, with a citrusy edge providing life and freshness to the nearly endless finish. "
97 Points

"Polished, unctuous and complex, layering its spice and pepper character through flavors of dried apricot, tobacco and brown sugar. Has richness, depth and deftness. Drink now."
95 Points

"Dark amber. Exotic aromas of candied orange, dried fig, spices and herbs, plus hints of honey and toffee. Sweet, tactile and strikingly dense, with spicy pit and citrus fruit and gingerbread flavors. Opulent and impressively concentrated but with unlikely vivacity on the endless, spice-accented finish. "
95 Points
