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

Color: Dark red to black, with great intensity. Nose: An intense, rich bouquet led by ripe cassis and berry fruits. Behind the primary fruit are distinctive vineyard characters of dark chocolate and mint.

Palate: This vineyard consistently produces intense, fleshy and full mid-palate Cabernet with massive fruit weight displaying dark cherry and blackcurrant flavors. This is a big full wine with ample flavor and concentration. Aging: Medium to long term cellaring possible.

Critical Acclaim

"Sweet mint and eucalyptus nose with green pepper and spice. Mouthwatering texture – thick and voluptuous – with fantastic balance and a nice textural succulence. Well made and evolving beautifully. "

Rich, minty. Not as good as the 2007 yet. Might need some time in the cellar to mellow out. Don't give up on it.
