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

The 2010 Monterey County Merlot is a great example of its cool climate terroir. The inky, dark fruit features aromas and flavors of blackberry and cedar and has excellent acidity and moderate structure.

This is a great wine to pair with many red meat dishes.
