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

Another shy '09, slow to reveal its usual malt and brown sugar aromas, but it comes on solid and generous; an entirely satisfying keep-you-company wine you don't have to pay all that geek attention to.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and juicy, sporting flavors of grapefruit, peach and a touch of spice, all buoyed by the vibrant structure. This shows some power for a kabinett and persists on the finish. Drink now through 2022."
