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

A blend composed of 80% tempranillo, 15% mazuelo, and 5% graciano.

Bright cherry-red color with purple hues. Complex and elegant nose with hints of ripe cherries and wildberries; spicy and memories of mineral notes integrated with oak hints. Tasty in the mouth, it is wide and complex. You feel the oak tannins that become integrated and rounded along the time in the bottle. It leaves a long and lingering finish, with mineral notes that show its origin.

Critical Acclaim

"Opaque ruby. Complex nose offers blackcurrant, dried rose, anise and pungent fresh herbs. At once suave and firm, with deep, medicinal cherry and dark berry flavors and a restrained sweetness. Solid and serious Rioja, with excellent finishing clarity and lingering notes of bitter cherry and candied rose. Give this some air, or cellar time."
92 Points

"A hard shell of tannins cracks to offer sweet dried cherry and dark chocolate flavors, intense and vibrant, with accents of cranberry, rhubarb and mineral. It's powerful, yet remains light on its feet. Drink now through 2015. 3,000 cases made."
