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

Crimson Ruby. Ripe cherry, strawberry and a violet character dominate the nose. Recessed and spice driven – the Kangarilla vineyard is elegant and light on its feet. Focused and precise, the primary influence is evident in the structure and the bright acidity ensures this will be a keeper.

Critical Acclaim

"Inky violet. Spicy, deeply concentrated black raspberry and boysenberry on the nose, with seductive Asian spices, lavender and incense qualities emerging with air. Sappy red and dark berry preserve flavors are enlivened by juicy minerality and pick up exotic spice and floral notes on the back end. The silky tannins provide shape but quickly fade into the fruit, which finishes with energetic mineral lift and cut. Finely etched, balanced and pure wine-and already delicious."
94 Points

"Supple, expressive and generous with its red berry, exotic spice and hints of sweet leather as this sails on beautifully. The firm finish needs time to soften."
92 Points

"The 2006 Grenache Kangarilla Vineyard is the most fragrant of the Grenache offerings as well as the most pleasure-bent. It should be drunk up during its first decade of like."
