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 wine is deep red with violet highlights. Aromas of great complexity with very ripe dark berries, a touch of black pepper, and spicy fragrances. On the palate well integrated delicate ripe tannins and complex finish with hints fo coffee, vanilla and toast.
Suggested food matching: Lamb ossobuco, hot spicy pumpkin risotto and malbec reduction. Stuffed fowl breast, potato, leek and bacon puree, red grape sauce.

Critical Acclaim

"Opaque purple; spice box, incense, lavender, and black fruit aromas; underlying structure."
