Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

This wine is on an intense Bordeaux color with purple rivulets. The nose is of mature fruit, spices and balsamic aromas with woody autumn notes. Smooth on the palate, softly blended with tannins, wild fruit and spices. Tasty and strong.

Durona is a complex blending of red wines from the Mont Rubi estate created to satisfy the most demanding palates and offer unique sensations because of the nobility and personality of the varieties of which it is composed.

Blend: 30% Sumoll, 20% Cariñena, 20% Garnacha, 20% Syrah, 10% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Durona is composed of 30% Sumoll, 20% Garnacha, 20% Carinena, 20% Shiraz, and 10% Merlot. The wine was barrel-fermented and aged for 12 months in French oak. Deep crimson-colored, it presents a complex, earthy, spicy nose with notes of assorted blue and black fruits. Sweet, ripe, and flavorful, it reveals some elegance and very good length. Give it 2-3 years and drink it through 2015. "
