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

This Grenache cuvée was first released in 2004. The fruit is hand-harvested and vinified 100% in stainless steel tanks to focus on the freshness and purity of the Grenache fruit. The wine displays round and textured cherry flavors with a brilliant spice factor throughout. The tannins here are well behind the fruit which makes this a wonderful wine for everyday dining and parties. The Gournier Grenache Noir is a true crowd pleaser and great value.

Critical Acclaim

"Vinified entirely in stainless steel, this is light and cool, a juicy grenache with appetite-provoking herbal notes. Chill it lightly for Thai sausage and sticky rice."

I would pass on this wine. Does not have the medium/dark berry lushness I expect in a Grenache focused blend
