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 wine is ruby red. The bouquet is like a bowl of red fruit. The mouth shows a rich, balanced and concentrated wine.

Critical Acclaim

"This full-bodied, creamy Crozes-Hermitage far outpaces expectations for the appellation, combining cherry-berry fruit with cracked pepper, mocha and licorice. Then it finishes long, anchored by a marriage of fruit and spice. It's ready to drink now, but should evolve positively through at least 2017. Editors' Choice."
92 Points

"Vivid, with superracy blackberry, black cherry and fig fruit liberally laced with graphite and black tea. A latent iron note leaves a tangy, mouthwatering finish and adds length."
91 Points

"Glass-staining ruby. Complex, pungent bouquet of red fruits, Asian spices and black olive, with a smoky overtone. Juicy, penetrating cherry and raspberry flavors show impressive energy and notes of cinnamon and clove. Clings nicely on the finish, where the spice and smoke notes repeat strongly. Half of this wine was fermented with whole clusters, which explains the intense spiciness."
