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

This wine is ruby-red in color with expressive notes of ripe plum mingled with black berry jam and sweet spice. On the palate, Maiana is full-bodied and robust.

A heavenly partner to roast game, beef or hearty casseroles.
