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

Opens with rich scents of black fruit and cedar. This wine is fruit-forward with intense cassis, plum and blackberry flavors, it's balanced with notes of tobacco, spice, and a solid structure for length on the palate, finishing with a touch of dark chocolate. 20 months in 30% new and 70% once and twice-filled French oak barrels.
