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

Delightful light ruby color, brilliant with rose tints. The 1st nose is fine, elegant, mingling smells of fresh red fruits (strawberry), and spicy notes (vanilla, cinnamon). The mouth is concentrated, almost tight; the tannins are present but fine and well defined; they underline rather than mask the aromas of cherry, kirsch and vanilla. Good length and pleasant fruit aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"When we dig a well for water, we mimic the action of a vine, which may be why a wine like this recalls the depths of a well in its rooty, wild mushroom and earth scents. That scent is atavistic, or, as one taster suggested, animalistic; wild and gamey, in any case. Its fruit has a clover honey edge, riding between cleanness and the hayloft above a stable. A Burgundy to bring out your own inner animal."

4.5 stars. Definitely needed the 1 hour decant--now drinking very smooth with well integrated acidity, tannins and fruit. Barnyard funk is fading a bit to reveal more of the exquisite fruit underneath. Yum.
