Alcohol By Volume: 14.7%

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

Our 2010 Platinum delivers rich elegance cloaked in a dark profile. Opulent, brooding and incredibly black in every sense. Blackberry, black currant and black cherry, deep and layered with baker's chocolate, tar, toast, clove and espresso. The intensity of flavors effortlessly unifies the palate, joined by mouth-coating tannins that support and lift the long finish. When experiencing this wine, it reminds me of stepping into a dark, wood-paneled library that envelopes your senses with its presence.

Critical Acclaim

"Under the Sterling Vineyards Black Label, the 2010 Proprietary Red Platinum is a blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec. It offers an impressive bouquet of spring flowers, blackberries, cassis, asphalt and a hint of charcoal. Rich, full textured and impressive, it is one of the most encouraging wines I have seen from Sterling. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years. "
