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

100% Tinta de Toro

The wine is a deep ruby red with an aroma both intense and complex with several layers of aromatics in this lively nose: first some extremely intense notes of red and black fruits (black cherries, raspberries, redcurrants and cassis), perfectly integrated with some sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper), vanilla and toasted characters.

On the palate, impressive and beautiful expressions of dark fruits with concentrated and velvety tannins. This full bodied wine shows exceptional acidity revealing some chocolate, toasted and spicy notes. Extremely long finish highlighting the complexity and handcraft character of this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Numanthia is marginally more approachable but it, too, is a dense, layered, voluminous, structured wine. Given the requisite cellaring, it will eventually become both elegant and powerful. Rated 94+"
94 Points

"This rich red brims with ripe, fresh flavors of blackberry and cassis, backed by toasty chocolate and dried spice notes that caress the palate and linger on the finish. Plush yet structured, in the modern style. Drink now through 2014."
92 Points

"Opaque purple. Higher-pitched than the Termes, displaying scents of spicy red berries, cherry and rose, plus a hint of smokiness. Juicy, strikingly fresh red fruit flavors are lifted by tangy minerality and are framed by silky tannins. Distinctly graceful for a wine with such serious palate impact, showing building spiciness on the long, sappy, focused finish. I suspect that this wine will be drinkable on the young side but it's balanced to age."
92 Points

"Stocky, dark and pure, with inky aromas of shoe polish, black fruits and charcoal. The palate is brawny and tannic, with saturated blackberry, espresso and bitter chocolate flavors. It’s rowdy but also attractive and full of everything good including chocolate, spice and pepper on the finish. Drink from 2011 through 2015."
