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 nose is classic Cabernet Sauvignon from a cool region. Layers of intensely flavored ripe forest berries infused with tobacco leaf and cassis, with a hint of brooding cedar oak. The wine displays a fine expression of varietal definition from a challenging cool vintage that yields soft luscious tannins and a long fresh finish.

Ringbolt is made for immediate drinking though it will continue to gain complexity with cellaring for up to five years.

The wine would be well paired with flame grilled meats or Mediterranean cuisine.

I was turned on to this wine about three weeks ago, and I can't get enough of it. It has a nice, fine line between subtleness and complexity. Good fruit and floral nose up-front but not a "fruit bomb" of a wine as some cabernet's can be. Great mid palate, and smooth, long finish. I get a bit of cocoa on the finish which I find to be great. Stands up well to food or a great "sipping" wine as well. I recommend this wine highly, especially for the price range!

Learn About Margaret River

Located in the southwest area of Western Australia, the country's largest state, Margaret River wine growing region is on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean.

Other varieties that have found results are Chardonnay & Riesling.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
