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%.

Critical Acclaim

"The fleshy, succulent, fat, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2009 Vacqueyras Le Pilon possesses excellent purity in addition to attractive gamey, meaty notes. Drink this front end-loaded, plump, hedonistic wine over the next 5-6 years.
Range: 90-92"
