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

A blend born from our two favorite things, food and wine! Seriously fun to drink, this is quite possibly the most intriguing wine to make here at Markham, as the blend is about creating ultimate drinking pleasure. Dark blackberry and smoky oak aromas weave seamlessly around a core of cola, black pepper and floral blueberry flavors. Sexy from the start with loads of vanilla and graham cracker character, a rich, juicy entry finishes with toasty oak and grippy tannins in this young wine.

Enjoy with updated comfort foods like pulled pork sliders or anything from the taco truck.

Blend: Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petit Verdot

It was a sleeper, much better than the $15 price. Drinks like a $40 bottle. Great everyday wine I will buy more, and watch for future vintages.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right.
