Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer.

Winemaker's Notes

Altocedro Ano Cero Tempranillo is a La Consulta-terroir driven Tempranillo that is fresh, fruit-forward, and easy-to-drink.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Aromas of red cherry, currant, flowers and spicy oak. At once sweet and perfumed, with lively acidity giving good juicy lift to the pristine flavors of red fruits, flowers, spices and herbs. This refreshing and thoroughly delightful tempranillo reminded me of a Central Coast wine made from a blend of southern French grapes."
89 Points

"The 2011 Ano Cero Tempranillo is from La Consulta, San Carlos and Uco Valley that is aged for eight months in used barrel. It has a pure bouquet with redcurrant and raspberry, where the oak is well-integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, supple tannins and a structured finish of raspberry and wild strawberry that exhibits impressive persistency. This is a very fine Tempranillo."
88 Points

"Offers layers of smoke, graphite and flowers to the racy currant, raspberry and damson plum fruit, as assertive tannins hold back the finish."
