Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
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%.

Winemaker's Notes

DiamAndes de Uco red wine has a personality of its own, shaped by the unique characteristics of Malbec, Argentina's emblematic varietal. This red wine blend is complex, alluring, intense and well-balanced. Full-bodied with rich, ripe fruit and depth.

Blend: 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"Appealing from the start, with minerality, crustiness and tight dark berry aromas. The palate is saturated and layered, with flavors of blackberry, coffee and chocolate. Offers grip and structure due to fine tannins, and it's ready to drink now."
92 Points

"Ripe and rich, but pure and showing solid drive, as the blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors race along an underpinning of graphite and black tea. The long, black licorice-filled finish is nicely focused. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2011. 3,500 cases made. "
91 Points

"Saturated bright ruby. Wild aromas of black fruits, game, leather, minerals and bitter chocolate, lifted by a peppery nuance. Sweet and concentrated, conveying an impression of strong extract to its intense flavors of blackcurrant and game. A strong graphite minerality adds to the impression of depth. Finishes with broad, serious tannins and lovely persistence.

A 70/30 blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon."

Was decent but not impressive. A perfect bottle for a large group party! Maybe a typical malbec but I personally expected more Bordeaux tastes.
