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 Henry's Drive Reserve Shiraz is sourced from a single vineyard of exceptional quality. It is a complex wine and exhibits characters of blackberry, Turkish delight and red currant along with spearmint, lifted dark toasted spices and hints of aniseed. The palate has great fruit weight with intense blackberry fruit flavors, clove spice notes, a hint of maple syrup and typical freshening mintiness. The wine is dense, complex, and very structural with a textured mouthfeel, and a full flavored finish that really lingers.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Henry’s Drive Reserve Shiraz is a bit more expressive aromatically with aromas of incense, Asian spices, bacon, and blueberry. Rich on the palate, it is already displaying some complexity, good depth of flavor, and a pure finish. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2012 to 2022. "
92 Points

"This full-bodied, fleshy Shiraz weighs in at a hefty 16% alcohol, but don’t let that put you off. For the near term, it’s a delicious bowl of mixed berries dressed up with elegant accents of smoke, toast, vanilla and mocha that hide the alcohol well. Drink now-2015."
92 Points

"Bright and beautifully focused, with currant, blackberry and white pepper flavors coursing past a layer of crisp tannins, lingering on the wide-open finish. Drink now through 2017. 2,400 cases made."
