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

The Cabernet Franc blends red fruit aromas with spicy touches of dark chocolate finishing with smooth, silky tannins. Pairs well with grilled food and tomato-baced pasta.The grapes for this wine are 100% Cabernet Franc and come from a vineyard block planted in a privileged location between the Chimbarongo Creek and the Tinguiririca River on the Maquis Estate, in the heart of the Colchagua Valley

Critical Acclaim

"This Cabernet Franc blends red fruit aromas with spicy touches of dark chocolate finishing with smooth, silky tannins. Best Buy."

Learn About Calcu

In the local Mapuche language, Calcu means “healing doctor” or “magician.” And indeed, winemakers Alejandro Jofre and Ricardo Rivadeniera have created a magical "Super Chilean" blend that expresses the diversity of the Colchagua Valley.

Like the bull on label, Calcu is exuberant and unrestrained. Rather than being tied to a particular terroir, Calcu is made with grapes harvested from throughout the Colchagua Valley, revealing different aspects of the valley’s dynamic character with every vintage

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
