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

Aromas of lime, melon, and guava mingle with herbal notes. Punchy citrus & guava flavors roll out to a long lingering finish. This wine shows great persistence of flavor.

Critical Acclaim

"The ripe pear and juicy lemon-lime flavors are fresh and bright, with fragrant notes of flowers and fresh thyme."
