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

Dense, ripe and lush berries with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a wine of power and elegance, harmonic and enticing. The finish is long and satisfying.

Wild game birds, Wild goat, Risotto all'Amarone, Gorgonzola cheese, Dark chocolate desserts, Cheesecakes, Hazelnut and Almond desserts.

Critical Acclaim

"Notes of black cherry, damson plum preserves and violet are underscored by iron and mineral flavors. The tannins are lightly chewy, balanced for just enough grip, ending with hints of chocolate and loam. Drink now through 2017. 500 cases imported. "
