Back many decades ago when I first became interested in wine--I confess: in the 1960's it was Gallo Hearty Burgundy, Cribari Family Jug Red and Almaden Mountain Red; there, I said it--the bottles always listed alcohol content in round figures with no decimals. I did not really care much then. Now it is 13.7%, 14.6%, etc. Also, I recall being told that in California, while there were laws that governed this labeling, there was a liberal leeway allowed in alcohol labeling and European imports were even less trustworthy. What is the case today (now that I might really care).
