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

Deep crimson. Aromas of lively cinnamon, black cherry, cocoa, espresso coffee bean, and nutmeg. The flavor is rich, with exquisite mouth-feel; velvety tannins; ripe fruit balanced with notes of chocolate and French vanilla. You will find a lengthy, elegant finish with the 2009 Reseve Meritage.

Blend: 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot
