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

#61 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Intense red garnet color with ocher hints. Intense and profound in the nose with fruity aromas such as cranberry and red currant. Slight touches of sweetness and cinnamon. Smooth and elegant in the mouth with a good balance between the red fruits and spices. Long aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"A dense, plush texture carries ripe flavors of plum, raisin, tar and tobacco in this bold red. Full tannins and bright acidity give this a youthful character. Expressive and harmonious. Drink now through 2018. 4,000 cases made."
92 Points

"The 2004 Gran Reserva is a blend of 90% Tempranillo, 6% Graciano and 4% Mazuelo aged for 24 months in American and French oak. There is a touch of volatility on the chocolate-scented bouquet that needs time to calm down in the glass. The palate is smooth and caressing on the entry with saturated tannins. It has a soft plush texture and a fine, supple chocolate-tinged finish that is persistent in the mouth. Drink now-2018."
90 Points

"Juicy with red cherry, licorice and an intriguing light fruit character like nectarine, this wine is bracketed by the structure of its oak and alcohol. Its bold, sweet fruit maintains Rioja elegance, ready for grilled lamb. "
