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

The 2013 BIN 27 Limited Edition Artist Series was created exclusively by acclaimed American artist Barnaby Furnas. For centuries, the port industry relied on the Duoro River to carry their world-renowned Port wines from the vineyards to the coastal town of Vila Nova de Gaia.

Fonseca BIN 27 and artist Barnaby Furnas proudly support the Waterkeeper Alliance, a global environmental movement that focuses on issues that affect waterways, from pollution to climate change.

This sweet wine shows fresh, rich blackberry and cassis aromas. On the palate, it has a well-knit structure, with a velvety, luscious mouthfeel and smooth tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and grapey, with plenty of grip and power behind dark plum, chocolate and berry flavors that feature slate and pepper notes. "
