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

Nice, mature wine, ready to drink. Russet red color with an auburn rim. Elegant style, with ripe red plum aromas, hints of cedar, raspberry and marzipan that open in the glass. Round tannins are prominent; muted red currant on the palate. Medium-bodied, delicate and restrained, but shows itself upon aeration.
