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

The inaugural 1976 vintage demonstrates a rare combination of drinkability and longevity. This wine still holds merit with remarkable maturity, but the memory of its greatness is more alive than the wine itself. Fully mature dried fruit, olive, tea leaf and leather notes, showing the nuttiness of oxidation but held together by a fine line of tart cherry fruit. Mouthwatering acidity and silky smooth texture volatilize quickly. The wine continues to evolve in the glass. Very long and classic finish. We would call this wine intriguing, but like an aging athlete, it’s a bit slow out of the blocks.
