OK, I did some further research on the subject by going to Marc's and purchasing a bottle of their Chard. When checking out, the guy in front of me was purchasing a case of Shiraz. ($36) On the side of the box I noticed the label read 13.9% alcohol. Interestingly, it's not stated on the bottle.
In evaluating the Chard, I found it tasted well, relatively smooth, light and somewhat fruity. I liked, it, and for the price, you can't go wrong. I just wish it was sold here in Texas.
