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

Very nice deep ruby red color, this wine has a distinct Cabernet Sauvignon character, with deep and pleasant blackcurrant and cherry notes. A big wine, yet elegant, it has a full body and promising tannins, abundant and mature. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long after-taste.

Critical Acclaim

"Saturated aromas of black currant and blueberry are nuanced with wood smoke, herb and mint notes. This feels ripped and tannic, but balanced, with toasty flavors of blackberry, cassis, herb and espresso. It's persistent on the finish."
91 Points

"A dark, rich red, displaying layers of mocha, tar and spice to the ripe cassis, plum and kirsch notes. There's depth to the flavors that reverberate on the tangy finish."
90 Points
