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

Color is deep red, almost inky. The bouquet boasts red fruit, blackberries, black currants and hints of tobacco. Rich, concentrated and spicy; persistent aromas of red fruit and licorice add elegance to the structure. This wine will benefit from two to three years' cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"This is strong, with an impressive core of melted black licorice, dark plum, currant and maduro tobacco all laced together with a dark, loamy note. There's a polished mouthfeel, but also brooding intensity. Best from 2011 through 2017. 2,200 cases made. "
92 Points

"Deep red with a bright rim. Peppery redcurrant and cherry aromas are complemented by baking spices and clove. Brisk and focused, with tangy red berry flavors, gentle tannins and good mineral snap. Nervy for a Cornas, with very good finishing grip and clarity. Range: 89-92"

After earning degrees in pharmacy and...

Learn About Cornas

(core-NAHS) Talk about potential... the appellation of Cornas is lesser-known than its northern counterparts, but has the ability to make delicious, hearty, long-lasting wines. The hills of Cornas are steep and hug the Rhone river, as many Northern Rhone appellations do. Cornas is typically best when aged for up to 10 years, although pioneer winemakers, like Jean-Luc Columbo...
