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

Deep ruby red. Great complexity on the nose with floral notes of jasmine and violet. This is backed up by sandalwood and liquorice with hints of classic lead pencil. Ripe, juicy red fruit are prominent on the palate with a lengthy, smooth finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are in perfect harmony. Together with the Merlot, this creates a well rounded wonderfully balanced wine.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz, 20% Merlot

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
