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 Allende Rioja, a 100% Tempranillo cuvee, was barrel fermented in a mix of new and used French oak, remained in barrel for 13 months, and was bottled unfiltered. The wine is inky purple-colored and has a superb nose of pain grille, mineral, violets, cranberry, and blueberry. The youthful palate reveals layers of fruit, ripe tannin, and excellent balance.

100% Tempranillo; 70% French and 30% American oak

Critical Acclaim

"Toasted coffee beans with attractive balsamic notes and aromas of mint, blackcurrant and meat juices. Heady and ambitious but elegantly structured in the mouth with fresh acidity and a pure, focused finish. Drink 2013–2020 "
92 Points

"Opaque ruby. A complex bouquet of dark berries, cherry cola and spicecake, with subtle minerality. Juicy, palate-staining blackberry and bitter cherry flavors blend density and energy, with very good mineral spine. Fresh and focused on the finish, which repeats the spicy notes."
91 Points
