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 deep crimson in color with purple hues. Lifted, sweet, satsuma plum, raspberry and peach aromas dominate with hints of biscuity french oak. Lovely sweet fruit gives a full, rich mouthfeel and is balanced with briary spice and fine drying tannins. The combination brings about a luscious, fruit driven wine with an extremely long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Full-bodied yet surprisingly light on its feet, the 2008 Hangin' Snakes represents a terrific value. Peppered meat, fresh berries, coffee and black olive notes add up to a complex, savory wine, framed by soft tannins. Drink now-2017.
Editors' Choice"
92 Points

"Smooth and velvety, a sharp mouthful of mineral-accented red berry and floral flavors riding easily over the fine tannins, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2016."
