Alcohol level

I just rec'd a quarterly wine club delivery from a local vineyard. One of my selections is listed as 16% alcohol which is higher than i remember on any other wine that i have bought. The wine is a lovely Bordeaux blend. How high is the alcohol level allowed to be for wine. Not considering fortified wine of course.
