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

Clos Figueres Priorat has a dense rich ruby color with wonderful scents of ripe blackberries and blueberries intermingled with the rich mineral flavors of a great Priorat. On the palate, it is approachable with pure intense flavors of red and black fruits, minerals and spices. The finish is lush, long and smooth. A delight for drinking over the next 12 to 15 years.

Critical Acclaim

"The purple-colored 2007 Clos Figueres displays an already complex nose of sandalwood, Asian spices, mineral, lavender, herbs, and assorted black fruits. Dense and sweet on the palate, this plush offering will continue evolving for another 5-7 years and have a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2027."
