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

An intense deep ruby red color, clear and bright, the 2010 vintage presents itself with a marked bouquet of ripe berries typical of the Maipo valley. The aromas then give way to mature plums and spice. In mouth, it is fresh, with good acidity and firm, velvety tannins and light notes of black fruits, typical of the variety.

This is an ideal wine to accompany all types of red meats, such as beef or pork ribs, as well as cold cuts and dishes with medium to spicy seasoning.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright purple. Jammy dark fruit aromas are complemented by notes of pipe tobacco and anise. Open-knit, attractively fruity and straightforward, offering plump cherry and cassis flavors and a supple texture. Finishes warm and soft, with lingering spiciness."

The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
