Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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

Clear, bright, deep red almost black color with elegant red notes. A nose of violets, black fruits, some mint, graphite, and chocolate. Very complex and elegant. On the palate it is sweet and gentle at first, dark fruit flavors explode with fine tannins. Long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Marguery Atento Malbec spent 18 months in new French oak. Purple/black-colored, it offers up a brooding bouquet of pain grille, asphalt, violets, spice box, black cherry, and plum. This leads to a dense, layered, powerful Malbec with ripe black fruit, plenty of fine-grained tannin, and a lengthy, pure finish. Give it 3-4 years to blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2026.

Familia Marguery's Atento cuvee is a barrel selection of the winery’s top lots made only in the finest vintages. "

Just as good as wine when I was in AR; medium finish, slightly dry. Would buy again.
