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

A rich, velvet-textured blend from old vine Mendocino Zinfandel (63%), Petite Sirah (19%) and Carignane (18%). Raspberry aromas are followed by boysenberry, licorice and dark chocolate flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"This dense, ripe and rich red delivers black cherry and licorice aromas that lead to layered huckleberry cobbler and spiced cinnamon flavors, all lingering on the long finish. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane. Drink now through 2017. 185 cases made."

I doubt that this wine deserves a 91 rating more like 89. They dont give the blend of grapes used and its hard to describe it. Its like a decent $10 wine but no better to me.
