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 and intense red with a violet edges. This wine has a nose of dried flowers, paprika and minerals. The palate is soft yet with firm tannins. Flavors of complex spices with a hint of tobacco. The finish is full-bodied, with a fine and lengthy finish.

Blend: 50% Monastrell, 50% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Pico Madama is a blend of 50% Monastrell and 50% Petit Verdot. The Monastrell was aged for 13 months in American oak, while the Petit Verdot was raised for 13 months in French oak. It offers up an aromatic array of wood smoke, graphite, lavender, blueberry, and blackberry. Firm on the palate with excellent richness, it has plenty of spicy black fruit flavors, a hint of tobacco, and balsamic, and enough tannin to evolve for 3-4 years. It will be at its best from 2012 to 2021. "
