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

Ferrer Bobet is primarily a blend of Carignane and Grenache, from hundred year old vines in some of the best vineyards in Priorat, sourced while their own vineyards mature. Though the "second wine" of Ferrer Bobet, the initial 2005 release put Ferrer Bobet on the wine world map. It launched the Ferrer Bobet mission of creating wines of elegance and purity, and the message has resonated.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Ferrer/Bobet is a vibrant offering with an expressive nose of cedar, spicy black fruits, exotic spices, and lavender. Only time will tell whether the 2009 is better than this beauty."
96 Points

"Saturated ruby. A highly perfumed, seductive bouquet features candied red and dark berries, cola, incense and violet, with mineral and star anise accents. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and cherry flavors show a suave blend of richness and vivacity and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Fine-grained tannins build on a finish that's sweet, focused and very long. This wine is balanced and concentrated for the long haul."
