Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Dark perfumed aromas of boysenberry and plum combine with cocoa, vanilla cream, and tobacco. The palate is bold, complex and fruitful. Loganberry and black cherry mingle with Earl Grey tea and dark chocolate, and are seamlessly brought together with fine grain tannins that sustain a long and luxurious finish.
Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec
"The J. Davies 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon brings together a juicy, generous expression of fruit allied to the underlying structure of the vintage. A beautifully balanced, totally harmonious wine, the 2010 stands out for its impeccable balance. All the elements are simply in the right place. Wild flowers, mint and sweet herbs ring out on the vibrant, beautifully delineated finish."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Delivers a beam of firm, rich blackberry, featuring floral scents and notes of mineral and graphite. The lively finish shows a measure of finesse and polish, with gripping tannins."
"Dark red. Good lift to the perfumed aromas of redcurrant, cassis, licorice and herbs. Sweet on entry, then tight in the middle, with a firm spine of acidity blocking the wine's sweetness today. Hints of dark chocolate and tobacco in a Bordeaux way. Finishes firm, dry and persistent. A bit denser than the 2009 version."
