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

The color is a deep purple with ruby rim. on the nose are black fruits, cracked pepper, smoke & toast. On the palate are deep black fruit and cherrys. Full bodied with firm tannins. The finish is long, smoky and toasty.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Manga del Brujo was made by Norrel Robertson, MW, in partnership with the importer. It is a blend of 65% Garnacha, 15% Syrah, 15% Tempranillo, and 5% Mazuelo aged for five months in French and American oak. The Garnacha component was sourced from vines over 100 years of age. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a toasty, smoky bouquet with aromas of mineral, black cherry, and blueberry. This is followed by a medium- to full-bodied wine with an elegant personality, a silky texture, intense, savory blue and black fruit flavors, superb balance, and 2-3 years of aging potential. This pleasure-bent wine will offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020."
