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

#20 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Full red color and berry fruit flavors. This is a full-bodied wine that shows firm, yet sweet tannins, and an aromatic and very persistent finish.

?Serve at room temperature. Superb with high quality blue or creamy cheeses, chocolates, berry fruit desserts. Without any filtration or stabilization, it will throw sediment along the years. Prior decanting and careful serving are recommended.

Critical Acclaim

"Elegant, with a deep purple color and complex, refined flavors of dark currant, ginger, blackberry and dark plum. Boysenberry and licorice notes chime in as well, lingering on the suave and silky finish. Fruity and complex. Best from 2016 through 2034."
95 Points

"A big, bold, black vintage Port, already enticingly perfumed, packed with as much rich fruit as tannin. It’s in the sweet vintage Port arena, an immediately attractive wine, yet layered with enough structure to keep it maturing for many years. The final sense is all richness."
91 Points

"Red and primary in its fruit, this is relatively light in body for a 2009. The wine's intensity builds as the tannins add schisty mineral weight, lasting on scents of pink peppercorn and black mushrooms. It's approachable as a young Vintage, or could be cellared for a decade to take on more mature pleasures."
