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

We strive to achieve a Malbec with a deep purple color, with a high intensity of blackberries, blueberries, plums and milk chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

"Very fleshy, with plum, fig and boysenberry paste flavors liberally layered with dark toast and espresso notes, followed by a broad finish. For the hedonist crowd. Drink now through 2012."
