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

Inky black and ruby red in color, on the nose the 2007 Marlstone pairs complex aromas of ripe wild blackberry fruit, plum and black licorice with pleasing notes of cigar box and brown spice. On the palate, the wine delivers concentrated blackberry and plum flavors and rich, supple tannins followed by a powerful, lengthy finish, wrapped in velvety notes of mocha.
