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

#43 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The color of this wine is a vibrant rich red It has a nose of ripe cherries, rich spices and licorice with some vanillin undertones, derived from the extended maturation in new and old American oak. On the palate the flavors explode in a fusion of complex oak and well integrated tannins with a backbone of ripe black plums.

Critical Acclaim

"Polished and generous, offering a racy mouthful of tobacco-accented cherry and black currant fruit that finishes with an edge of dried sage, licorice and fresh cream. This lingers impressively, showing amazing depth. Drink now through 2017. 8,200 cases made."

I recently ordered 6 bottles of the Schild Estate Shiraz. I recently tried the 2008 and it blew my mind. Unfortunately the first bottle we opened of the 2007 left much to be desired. The bottle tasted like it had either been exposed to too much heat on delivery, a bad bottle, or it just had too much tobbacco and burnt notes. I will update after I try another bottle.

This is the off-year of a WS Top 100 wine, but there is nothing off about it. It is beautiful - intense, fantastic Shiraz.
