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

The Mas de l'Abundancia winery is entrenched in history, art and quality wine production. Translated as "land of the abundant harvest," the winery's name stems from the 15th century when the current vineyard site was farmed by monks from the nearby Scala Dei monastery. Winemaker Jesus del Rio, whose family has cultivated land in the region since the 1300s, manages this property in the heart of Montsant with help from his wife, Marta.

The majority of the estate is devoted to the Garnacha grape variety that del Rio's family has grown for generations. A self-trained viticulturalist, he planted over 7,000 Garnacha and 6,000 Cabernet Sauvignon vines himself, fueled by his belief that these varieties would express the true terroir of his land.

He bottled his first flagship wine, named for the winery "Mas de l'Abundancia," in 2002. Made from Garnacha and Cariñena, this wine symbolizes the fusion of an ancient land with innovative enology and artistic winemaking. This is the first time these wines have been imported into the United States.

Critical Acclaim

"The garnet–colored 2005 Mas de l’Abundancia is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carinena, and 2% Garnacha Negra aged for 13 months in 40% new French oak. It offers up a bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, violets, roses, spice box, black cherry, and cassis. Full-bodied on the palate with a smooth texture, it has good depth, complex flavors, 4-6 years of cellaring potential, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It should be at its best from 2014 to 2025."

A little of this aroma goes a long way for us, but this was overwhelming. I wanted to pour it into the litter box.
