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

Attractive dark ruby-red color. Intense bouquet of fruits of the forest that open out with very refined oak in the background. Charming mature fruit in the mouth that highlights this wine's noble origin. Flavors are still fresh with pleasant fullness that combines with tannins to give a nice balance. Unctuous structure and good complexity that come through elegantly, promising an excellent development in the bottle. Luscious finish with refined, well-integrated tannins. A splendid wine.

Critical Acclaim

"This reflects the vintage in its beefy richness, while it follows Cáceres's modern style in the polish and elegance of its tannin. The fruit develops definition with air, tasting of tiny cherries and red currants. For the cellar, or give it time in a decanter for lamb chops off the grill."
91 Points

"Deep and dark, with attractive berry aromas. No mulchy, overoaked interference at all; it’s a clean wine with a medium-to-full body and lightly buttered berry, cherry and raspberry flavors. A mouthfilling, honest Rioja reserva with texture and a bit of vanilla on the finish."
