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

Generous tannins, excellent balance and elegance are the main characteristics of the red wines of Vacqueyras, along with intense dark fruit aromas (plum, black-and blueberry). The colors are intense and the grape varieties express themselves perfectly. 2010 is a vintage brimming with elegance and roundness.

Critical Acclaim

"This has a dark, succulent profile, with lots of mixed berry, plum sauce and fig paste notes laced with licorice root and ganache, all carried by well-embedded acidity. Shows nice grip and purity through the finish."
90 Points

"Dark purple. Expressive aromas of black raspberry and candied cherry. Lush and open-knit, with good depth and a touch of warmth to its dark fruit compote flavors. The cherry note recurs on the finish, which features supple tannins and lingering spiciness.

Range: 88-90 Points"

Learn About Vacqueyras

(vah-keh-rahs) Once just a Cotes-du-Rhone village, the wine of Vacqueyras made its mark and in 1990, gaining its own appellation. The wine is somewhat similar to its northern neighbor, Gigondas, and occasionally even more rustic. Vacqueyras wine gives off the flavors of the earth where the vines grow - wild herbs, spice and rocky soil. Notable Facts Like other Southern Rhone...
