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

#54 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The wine has a deep center with a dark red rim. The bouquet shows lashings of classical Barossa Shiraz chocolate and plum aromas, given a gentle life from the well seasoned French oak notes. It is a robustly structured wine, with a mouth-filling, generous fruit clothing its firm muscularity. It finishes firm with powdery tannins. It is a fine example of Barossa Shiraz from a top vintage year.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and round, this is generous with its smoky cherry and black currant flavors, persisting against mildly grippy tannins to create a long, layered finish. Best from 2010 through 2016. 26,400 cases imported. "
91 Points

"The product of an excellent vintage, with clear blackberry and plum varietal fruit doing the talking. Screwcap."

A nice, full-bodied shiraz at a great price. It's become our house red wine.

Mmmmmm. Excellent Aussie Shiraz, beautifully crafted. This is big and round. Smokey spice, with a wonderfully long finish. I've ordered another case for my cellar - but don't think I'll have the strength to hold off long enough for this to reach its peak.

Sho Morimoto - Washington, DC (read all my reviews)

A little too bitter, but should smooth out if aged. Earthy, smoky aroma with hints of tobacco; medium body with robust flavors of black berries, oak, and pepper.
