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

80% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 10% Garnacha, fermented with the natural yeast and aged nearly two years in fine grained new French oak. Manually harvested from estate vineyards over 40 years of age in the Rioja Alta villages of Uruñuela, Cenicero and San Asensio.

Critical Acclaim

"The purple-colored 2007 Soros 80/10/10 is a modern style of Rioja with savory, spicy black fruits, a bit of complexity and enough structure to evolve for another 1-2 years. This nicely proportioned, well-priced offering will continue to provide pleasure through 2019."
