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

Syrah, Garnacha Tintorera, Garnacha Tinto

Critical Acclaim

"This Syrah-Garnacha blend is lush and dense, with attractive licorice and blackberry aromas. It’s lusty in the mouth, but balanced as it deals largescale blackberry, pepper, spice and bitter chocolate flavors. Toasty on the finish, with black coffee. A full-bodied winner that’s dynamic and overdelivers for the price. "
91 Points

"A subtle, balanced red, delivering firm tannins that are fleshed out by dark berry, plum and lots of spice. A touch of dark chocolate shows midpalate, and through to the lingering finish. Give this some air in the glass. Best from 2011 through 2017. 500 cases imported. "
