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

A combination of altitude and soil helps to bring out the very best in this old vine Tempranillo, and creates a fruit forward wine with structure and earth notes. Dark cherry-red, with an intense purplish color round the edges. Aromas of ripe forest fruit, cocoa, violets and a balsamic flourish against a smoky background. Flavorsome, fresh, balanced and meaty, with good fruit on the palate. Forest fruits take the lead for the overture.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Mano a Mano (100% Tempranillo) was aged in new French oak for 7 months. It ups the ante in its display of smoke, meat, black and blue fruits that are surprisingly complex for the humble asking price. Sweetly-fruited on the palate with a bit of structure, it will continue to deliver the goods for several more years. "
