Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot all contribute to this wine's unique flavor. A brilliant dark ruby in color, this Meritage is robust with aromas of black cherry, currants, and blueberry with subtle notes of succulent dark chocolate and cinnamon completing the nose. Flavors of cassis and boysenberries are lush and pronounced on the palate, followed by hints of roasted coffee and maple. This is a complex wine that is well-structured and has a long, smooth finish.

Blend: 35% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
