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

Gewürztraminer is among the most exciting and aromatic varieties on earth. This 2010 screams with bright aromatic notes of pink grapefruit, lychee, candied ginger, orange blossoms and rose. Firm, crisp, and full palate with flavors of red grapefruit, lemon and lime zest. is balanced and refreshing wine is the perfect accompaniment to grilled seafood or spicy foods.

Critical Acclaim

"A terrific Gewürz, and kudos for Firestone holding it back for nearly three years to let it mellow. It’s a bit soft compared to an Alsatian bottling, but rich and spicy, with flavors suggesting gingerbread cookies dipped into orange marmalade. The finish boasts honeyed tones that linger. Best Buy."

This wine smelled very grape-y and I thought it would taste as sweet as it smelled, but it did not. It also had an unappealing aftertaste. I won't be getting this wine again.
