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

There are aromas of blackberry and vanilla with coffee notes.

On the palate the wine is medium-bodied and elegant, with flavors of blackberry, plum and vanilla set against a backdrop of soft tannins.

Enjoy with roasted or grilled red meats and soft cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"A finely structured wine that brings forward its firm tannins, but also keeps black berry and red plum fruit flavors. It has an edge of leanness, minerality perhaps, its tannins emphasizing dryness. The balance between the structure and the fruit produces a good value wine that is on a knife edge of exciting tension."
