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 2009 Symmetry greets you with an opulent bouquet of blackberries, currants, sweet spices, and a hint of violet blossom, and unfolds on the palate with layers of black fruits, dark chocolate and spice. This mouth-filling wine is rich and silky in texture, with the backbone for years in the cellar. It manages to be at once harmonious, concentrated, and elegant, with a long and powerful finish. Intended to be enjoyable on release, the 2009 Symmetry is destined for evolution in the bottle. Savor it!

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc
