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

Dark purple in color with a nose of black cherry, cassis, with hints of tar, tobacco and sweet vanilla toast. Black cherry and blackberry fruit continue on the palate with dried herbs and licorice. A nicely balanced wine with enough acid and tannins to make this a more serious longer lived wine that pairs nicely with food.

Critical Acclaim

"Young, bright, sharply defined, this brings berry and cranberry fruit in a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a splash of Syrah. Hints of pepper and herb suggest this as a companion to, say, lamb sausage. Then, as the wine opens in the glass, cherry candy comes on strong. Very pretty."
