Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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

Like Elvis Presley's character Vince Everett in the 1957 movie Jailhouse Rock, Jailhouse Rock Merlot is bold and spicy, dancing across the palate with sensuously supple blackberry, cedar, plum jam and spicy oak flavors.

This richly flavored Merlot has aromas of black cherries and jam with flavors of vanilla and sweet oak balancing the plush tannins.

This bold Merlot is the perfect pairing for beef, lamb and veal dishes and chocolate truffles.

Learn About Merlot

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?).
