Alcohol By Volume Guide
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. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Red Garnet middle layer and purple trim. Nose of intense fragrance of red fruits with predominance of strawberry and floral notes of violets followed by spicy notes, highlighting black pepper and licorice. The palate is elegant with fresh input and prevalence of pepper on background of ripe fruit, strawberry and cherry. Balance between crisp acidity and a firm but well polished tannins confer friendly and remarkable length and depth.
"The 2011 Bobal deSanjuan (red) was harvested from September 27, picked from organically grown vines. The nose is well defined with pressed flowers, crushed stone and a touch of balsamic. The palate is fresh and natural with good acidity, hints of mulberry and briary fruit with a very cool, Rhone-like finish that is pure and focused. This is a bright, breezy Bobal that is very well made. Drink now-2017. "
The Wine Advocate
"Vivid ruby. Spicy, floral-accented red and dark berry aromas display impressive intensity and clarity. Explosive raspberry and boysenberry flavors stain the palate and show very good focus and energy. A suave rose pastille quality builds with air and carries through the long, sweet finish, which features notes of bitter chocolate and spicecake. This wine delivers a lot of complexity for the variety and for the money."
