Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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

Red Knot Shiraz is a deem magenta color. Alluring primary aromas of black cherry, strawberry and milk chocolate are highlighted with hints of roased coffee bean and vanilla. The palate is a delicious compote of ripe summer berries, perfectly balanced with satiny fruit tannins and fresh acidity. This medium-full bodied wine is guaranteed to please.

Blend: 92% Shiraz, 8% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and sleek, with a vibrant feel to the red berry and blackberry flavors, hinting at mint as the finish lingers on a polished texture."
90 Points

"Deep, dense, purple-red; absolutely full of black fruits, dark chocolate, earth and licorice fruit, the tannins in proportion, French and American oak likewise. Outstanding value, with definite cellaring potential for those who wish to do so."
