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

Cortijo Tinto shows terrific array of cherry and black raspberry aromas with earth notes before a surprisingly rich, full wine with loads of savory fruit and a long, pure finish.

The fresh, pure character of this wine makes this an extremely versatile wine to pair with food. Without the rotund weight of oak aging, this wine pairs well with white meats like pork and chicken and flaky fish like hake, cod or flounder. This has the fruit and acidity to match with red meats, as well.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red fruits and flowers on the nose, along with deeper notes of black tea and licorice. Silky in texture, with good mineral spine to the spicy red- and blackcurrant flavors. A bitter cherry note comes up with air and carries through the spicy, gripping finish. Most Spanish wines at this price are all about exuberant fruit but not this one; in fact, it's rare to find this sort of texture and structure for under $20. "
