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%.

Critical Acclaim

"I tasted this cuvee three times, and on each occasion it was totally exhilarating. Notes of white chocolate, creme de cassis, raspberry liqueur, truffles and lead pencil shavings emerge from this stunningly proportioned 2011. With massive fruit and richness, sweet tannin and adequate acidity, it is even more impressive than most vintages to date given the less than perfect growing conditions of 2011. Drink it over the next two decades.

"Shows some zip, which lends a vibrant edge to the blueberry, linzer torte and blackberry fruit, with lots of spice bouncing through the finish. This still has some toast to soak up, but there's lots to like.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points"
93 Points

"Opaque inky purple. Penetrating, pure, ripe aromas of blackberry, cocoa and minerals. Large-scaled, dense and rich, with compelling complexity to the pure blackcurrant, mineral and coffee flavors. Finishes long and elegant, with rising tannins. Great stuff.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"

"This is well done with dark ripe fruits with plums and blueberries. Full and velvety with hints of chocolate. Plenty of fruit. A tiny bit hollow.
