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

"Quite expressive, offering bright blueberry and raspberry aromas and flavors, with lots of lightly toasted spice flittering through the long, silky finish. Showing lovely purity, this is a really beautiful, tender expression for the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points"
95 Points

"A very classic wine, the 2011 is inky purple, with a superb aromatic display of black raspberry, cassis, chocolate, forest floor and some vague smoky, barbecue scents. Full-bodied, powerful, pure and impressively rich, this blend of 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points"
94 Points

"A bright, fruit-forward wine that already shows its delicious blackberry flavors. It is ripe and juicy, with a layer of finely integrated tannins.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points "

"Fascinating nose of black truffles, fresh citrus fruit, and minerals. Cocoa too. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and a medium chewy finish. This has an impressive finish for the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points"
93 Points

"Opaque purple. Ripe cassis, smoke and flint on the perfumed nose. Ripe, full and suave on entry, then brightly acidic and fruity in the middle, with very good purity to the redcurrant and floral flavors. Finishes long and refined, but with a slightly green edge that had me a little worried. Still, there's so much lovely minerally fruit present that I'll give this wine the benefit of the doubt.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points"
