Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Dark, opaque, nearly black in color. Powerful black currant and berries aromas. Medium-bodied, sweet, with a good fruit and a long, satisfying finish.
"A fabulous nose of cassis and berries, with hints of licorice. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with supersexy tannins and a long, long finish. Very classy. Superb for Delaforce."
"Bright saturated ruby. Captivating aromas of blackberry, kirsch, licorice and candied violet. Dense, concentrated and sweet, with primary dark fruit flavors enlivened by firm but ripe acidity. Complicating notes of pepper and herbs. Very nicely delineated, fine-grained wine, finishing with broad tannins."
