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

Juicy, ripe berries, roasted herbs, and licorice fill the nose. Toasty, mellow tannins yield to bitter chocolate, medium-roast coffee, and bowl-fulls of crushed berries. The wild Contra Costa garrigue and soil notes carry the finish as the fleshy fruit lingers.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red-ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of crushed blueberry and blackberry complicated by licorice, spices, graphite and a suggestion of exotic fruits. Sweet, lush and slightly high-toned, with a distinctly creamy quality to its superripe fruit flavors. Plenty of early sex appeal here."
