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

57% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Bonarda.

Dark ruby red color with a black core. Dark red fruit aromas with hints of tobacco, chocolate, vanilla, cassis and clove. The mouth-feel is smooth, fruity and has very good acidity. The long finish is balanced with sweet tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and juicy, with mixed berry, briar and licorice notes backed by a modestly toasty finish. Very user-friendly. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda and Merlot. Drink now."
89 Points

"Malbec and Bonarda are the lead grapes in this four-variety blend that shows improvement from the 2004, which was tough. Loads of ripe, dark fruit lead the way, with chewy, dense berry flavors coming next. It’s bolstered by warm, oaky hints that settle on mocha and spice, so it fits the familiar style of what is good Mendoza wine. "
