Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

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 wine is deep pink with orange highlights. On the nose, the wine is immediately intense with mineral, fresh nuts, red currant and rose aromas. On the palate the wine is medium bodied with good acidity and notes of minerality and red frutis; good length on the finish.
