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

This fresh, juicy Shiraz flaunts lively flavors of ripe mulberry, black cherry, and dark chocolate, with hints of white pepper, earth, and spice on the finish. It makes a perfect partner for bacon cheeseburgers, grilled sausages, hearty pasta dishes, and lamb chops.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark red. Slightly candied aromas of blackberry, raspberry, pepper, gunflint and musky spices, with attractive floral lift. Supple, juicy and moderately intense, with a slightly high-toned character. Finishes with good sweetness and grip. This is called shiraz but struck me as more Rhone-like than Australian in style. An excellent value."

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