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

Darkly concentrated and rich yet maintaining poise and freshness, the 2012 Amon-Ra displays masses of dark fruit and spice on the nose and an alluring depth and structure on the palate. Notes and black licorice, blackcurrant and dark cherry lead into firm, finely grained tannin and impressive length. A wine destined to impress and reward with long term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Very deep purple-black in color, the 2012 Amon Ra reveals intense notes of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry compote and licorice with nuances of cloves, allspice, chocolate box and salami as well as a whiff of espresso. The 100% Shiraz palate offers a beast of a wine that is densely packed with black fruit and baking spice flavors and is supported with firm, grainy tannins and crisp acid through to a finish with excellent persistence.

"Glass-staining purple. A heady, complex bouquet exudes dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille qualities, along with notes of sandalwood, smoked meat and star anise. Sweet and deeply pitched on the palate, offering vibrant cassis and boysenberry flavors that gain vivacity with air. Chewy tannins frame the sappy fruit on a lovely lingering finish."
94 Points

"Supple and expressive, layered with clove- and nutmeg-accented cherry and floral flavors, coming together seamlessly on the sleek finish. Has integrity and depth. Best from 2015 through 2020"
