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 saturated black ruby in the glass. Aromas suggest Provencal lavender, thyme and rosemary, with plums and black raspberries enlivened with a pinch of white pepper. The mouth delivers spiced cherries and plums, with hints of ginger and bass notes of dark chocolate. Deliciously complex—a winter warmer and a bottle that demands great food and great company. The bottle shape is a traditional Provencal style that the Cartier family has preserved; it looks great on the table. A blend of 42% Grenache, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 15% Carignan; all tank made. Long and full of flavor yet still very fresh—a sexy, very pleasurable rouge.
