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 color is a lively and brilliant dark ruby-red. The odor is fresh and intense with clean scents of wild berries and hints of vanilla. The flavor is warm and robust, pleasant and balanced. The wine also features a big body.

Critical Acclaim

"This has an impressive nose of tar, blackberry and black licorice. Full-bodied and very ripe, almost raisiny, but long and powerful, with loads of fruit and refined structure. Drink now. 25,000 cases made."
