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

#63 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Dark, deep red. Hints of berries, chocolate, cigar box, pepper and mineral notes on the nose. Tasty and full-bodied with a bright, deep red color. It is an elegant, powerful wine which lingers in the mouth.

Enjoy the distinctive taste of Terrunyo Carmenere with meats, aged cheeses and pastas.

Critical Acclaim

"The red wines start with the saturated purple 2006 Carmenere Peumo Vineyard Block 27. The nose offers up spice box, mineral, plum, black cherry, and blueberry. This is followed by a round, mouth-filling plush wine with ripe underlying tannin, complex, spicy flavors, excellent density, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2012 to 2021.

Terrunyo is a premium label owned by Concha y Toro. During my visit with Ignacio Recabarren, the brilliant vigneron behind the Terrunyo Carmenere project, I was able to taste all of the wine to date including the yet to be released 2007 Carmin de Peumo."
94 Points

"Dark in profile, with plum and currant fruit, but very pure, with silky tannins and a long, stylish finish that lets incense, spice and mineral notes play out. Drink now through 2011. 8,500 cases made."
92 Points

"Inky ruby. Suave aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and licorice. A smoky note comes up with air and carries onto the palate, which offers sweet red and black fruit flavors and fine-grained tannins. Sappy red fruits linger on the long, nicely focused finish. This is complex enough to drink now but I'd hold off for at least another couple of years. "

nose: spicy, charcoal, fruity (berry). the spicy part doesn't come out until the wine warms up taste: a hint of citrus and smokey favor. the fruitiness continues to dominate. the tannin is indeed v. silky like the critics have pointed out. finish: light and smooth, but would be enough to remind you to pour yourself another glass

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....

Learn About Carmenere

Carmenere(car-men-YEHR) Chilean Jewel Carmenere is yet another grape that was eventually exiled from the Bordeaux blend. In the late 1800's, Carmenere was brought over to Chile from France, and it never turned back. For a while, Chilean growers thought this grape was Merlot and labeled their wines as such. But in the early nineties, thanks to DNA...
