Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

This wine's name is derived from the valley where the winery and surrounding vineyard area is called Puerto, which in Spanish means a "natural passage or corridor in between mountains."

Blend: 66% Monastrell, 19% Garnacha Tintorera, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"There are 5,000 cases of this remarkable value, another stunning example of the astonishing palate of Eric Solomon and his ability to ferret out exceptional wines at such ridiculously low prices that most consumers will never guess how good they are based on the price alone. Composed of 66% Monastrell, 19% Garnacha and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for one year in both new and 2-year-old French oak, it displays an inky/purple color along with notes of road tar, melted asphalt, blackberry liqueur, camphor, graphite and forest floor. The wine is complex, full-bodied, rich and intense with terrific purity and wonderful overall balance. It is one more example of a wine that completely over-delivers."

Learn About Bodegas Sierra Salinas

In 2000 the Castano family acquired and re-organized old vineyards located at the foot of the Sierra Salinas Mountains, between the provinces of Murcia and Alicante, and built the Bodegas Sierra Salinas. The vineyards are situated at diverse altitudes with a range of soil types and arid micro-climates characterized by cold winters and warm summers.

Five different grape varieties are grown on the property including: non-irrigated Monastrell bush vines (50% of the total density of the plantation) and irrigated Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tintorera and Petit Verdot.
