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

Very deep crimson in color. Sweet lifted aromas of blackberries, plums, cassis and mulberries with hints of anise, cedar and vanilla. Ripe sweet blackberry fruits on the lush, layered palate; complex, with velvety tannins, great concentration long and silky.

Critical Acclaim

"The Eden Valley gives focus and structure; a cascade of predominantly red fruits including cherry and raspberry, but resting on a firm foundation. Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot."
94 Points

"Saturated red color. Black raspberry, boysenberry, cherry-cola and Asian spices on the nose, with gentle oak spiciness adding further complexity. Plump and juicy, offering luscious dark berry, cherry-vanilla flavors and succulent herb flavors, with silky tannins providing frame. Firm minerality lends focus to an impressively long, juicy finish, which leaves anise and baking spices behind. Suave and sweet, with the balance to age but the sex-appeal to drink now."
92 Points

"This blend of 63% Shiraz, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc starts off with herbal, smoky, green-peppercorn aromas, but really rounds into shape on the palate, where it offers blueberry fruit and hints of maple syrup and vanilla. It’s full-bodied and lush in texture, suggesting early maturation. Drink now–2013. "
