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

Zachary's Ladder is an opaque, purple-red violet color. It has a big nose of earth, lavender, and herbs. Firm in texture, with a swarm of tannins around a rich core of coffee- and cream-accented black cherry and spice flavors. Finishes with oomph.

Blend: 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Syrah and 4% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Exceptionally ripe and yet beautifully proportioned, this has a gravelly base under bright red currant and raspberry fruit. Tight and tart initially, it opens into a lush, superripe wine that finishes a bit hard and green but with bright, intense baking spice highlights."
92 Points

"Firm in texture, with a swarm of tannins around a rich core of coffee- and cream-accented black cherry and spice flavors. Finishes with oomph. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Best from 2013 through 2018. 700 cases made."
