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

Deep maroon red color. Intense and prolonged aromas with notes of black fruits and sweet spices such as cinnamon and vanilla over a base of balsamic and mineral. On the palate, it is elegant, meaty and structured. The fruit stands out with notes of mint and cocoa over a base of tobacco. A lively wine with a fresh and long palate.

Ideal with red meats, game and cheese.

Blend: 92% Tempranillo, 4% Graciano, 4% Mazuelo

Critical Acclaim

"Beronia has blended modern and traditional touches to create a fine gran reserva with spice, vanilla, coconut, tobacco and dried berry aromas. The palate offers ripe tannins and kick, while the flavor profile is earthy, with mocha, coffee, chocolate and dried berry flavors. A long, lightly toasted and chocolaty finish provides a fitting end to an excellent wine. Best from 2015–2022.
Cellar Selection"
92 Points

"This harmonious red is dense and lively, with plum, licorice, smoke and mineral flavors supported by moderate tannins and fresh acidity. Not assertive, but showing drive through the floral finish."
91 Points

"Deep red. Vanilla- and smoke-accented red berry and cherry aromas, with a hint of pipe tobacco emerging with aeration. Sappy, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering plump raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied rose. Smooth tannins frame the finish, which shows very good clarity and spicy persistence. "
