Alcohol By Volume: 14.6%

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 presents itself as a deep purple red, followed by aromas of rock rose, cassis, pepper and mocha. In the mouth, there are flavors of dark berry fruit, followed by full bodied yet soft tannins. Aging potential is 10 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Showing strong, dense structure, this is a full, tannic wine. It starts tough and dry on the palate. The fruit comes through slowly, revealing red berry flavors."
