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

Deep violet-ruby-red in color, the 2010 Single Vineyard Carmenere shows notes of black fruits, sweet spice, and black pepper on the nose. In addition to the palate's intense flavors and excellent typicity, notes of roasted red peppers, soy sauce, and blackberries are complemented by a touch of tobacco and graphite. The tannins are very sweet, mild, and ripe, and the firm, refreshing acidity ensures a long life in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by candied licorice and mocha. Supple and deep on entry, then livelier in the mid-palate, offering sweet blackberry and mulberry flavors sharpened by peppery spices. Supple tannins add shape to the long, smoky, nicely finish."

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.
