Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

Deep purple color. Expressive nose of black fruit, aromatic herbs, and mineral notes with the elegance of wood. The mouthfeel is very dense, fleshy, with a structure of high quality and well integrated tannins. A wine combining power and elegance.

Blend: 96% Tempranillo, 3% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Montecastro is a glass-coating opaque purple with an alluring nose of pain grille, earth, mineral, and assorted black fruits. On the palate it has plenty of depth, layered fruit, savory flavors, and impeccable balance. Give this lengthy offering another 2-3 years of aging and drink it from 2012 to 2026."
