I'm sipping an 18 year old Oban single malt scotch that has 40%. Seems OK to me.I'm sipping wine with the highest alcohol content I've ever noticed -- 16.5%. Normally I would choke on so much alcohol, but the wine is surprisingly abundant in fruit flavor. It's a Sonoma County Zin.

Your wife has excellent taste. I've never had a better brand of Gewurtztraminer. I picked up a couple bottles of the 2016 vintage a week or so ago.2015 Trimbach Gewürztraminer, my wife's favorite.
