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

True Amontillados are naturally-aged versions of the best finos, and are totally dry. Napoleon is a rare example of an authentic amontillado from manzanilla origins in a rich yet long, lean and elegant style.

Critical Acclaim

"Panel Tasting

"A great wine: complex and expressive, melding the deep expression of amontillado and the fresh lightness of manzanilla."-P.T.

"Glorious amber color with reddish tinges. A nose laden with vanilla, almonds, coconut and mocha. Pungent, punchy palate: firm grip, very intense. Powerfully salty but with an underlying fruit note to soften the briskness. Long and superbly complex: Sherry at its unique best." -S.E.

"Deep amber hue. Very concentrated, pungent nose of toffee and roasted nuts. Bone dry palate that is very specifically manzanilla with an underlying saltiness. Well balanced and powerful." -N.R. "
95 Points

"Medium amber, nutty... a dry style sherry, also a fine aperitif."
90 Points
