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

Dark magenta reflections in the glass lead to aromas of black plum, chocolate-covered cherries and crushed stones. The palate is weighty, with blueberries, smoke and cedar notes supported by the fine, powdery texture of tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Finca 8's 2009 Malbec was aged in stainless steel with controlled micro-oxygenation. It offers up an inviting nose of spice box, lavender, underbrush, and black cherry. Spicy and structured on the palate, this lengthy effort is densely fruity and rich. Give it 1-2 years to fully unwind and drink it through 2021.
