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

Irony 2012 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon opens with enticing aromas of boysenberry, black cherry and cassis, with a hint of cedar notes. This medium-bodied wine delivers dark berry flavors, mixed with layers of chocolate covered black cherries and baking spice.

Lush fruit, a balanced profile and bold dusty tannins make this wine a perfect match for roast beef tenderloin, penne pasta with Italian sausage or even chocolate cake.
