Cocobon Red Blend review: What's its alcohol content?
Cocobon Red Blend wine’s alcohol content is 13.5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Cocobon Red Blend wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per grams vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per grams of carbs, which include sugar.
What is Cocobon?
Here is an extract from the Cocobon bottle itself:
“We’ve sourced grapes from the finest California vineyards to handcraft a rich, silky red blend with a soft, luxurious finish.“
This is a silky and smooth red blend that for less than ~$10 offers a great value for your money.
Dark cherry, raspberry, and a vanilla finish will complement many dishes from veggie, pasta, a vast variety of red meats, and our beloved cheeses.
Try it with mushroom pizza, pork, or Taleggio cheese and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
