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 Palacios Remondo winery is located in the eastern portion of one of Spain's oldest and best known wine making regions, Rioja. The estate's flagship wine, Propiedad, is made from a blend of the indigenous Spanish grape varietals Garnacha (60%) and Tempranillo (40%) and, true to its name, it is the finest expression of the vineyards on the Palacios Remondo property, or "propiedad." In the nose it is dense and succulent, with aromas of spices, softly charred oak and sweet flowers from the Rioja region. On the palate, the wine has purity and balance with hints of ripe forest berries, blood orange rind, fresh cherries, slight creamy notes and toasted oak.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Propriedad is composed of 60% Garnacha and 40% Tempranillo aged for 14 months in mostly French oak and was bottled unfiltered. Dark ruby-colored, it presents an enticing perfume of smoke, pencil lead, spice box, flowers, black cherry, and blackberry. Medium to full-bodied, the wine delivers plenty of ripe fruit, excellent balance, and enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years. However, this elegant wine can be enjoyed now and over the next 8-10 years. "
91 Points

"A clear step up from the overdone 2003 Propiedad, this vintage is sweet and easy to like. There's a blast of hickory smoke on the new-oak nose, but also black fruit and molasses. The ripe palate deals chewy fruit, medium tannins and moderate length. It's a charming but blunt wine, and all in all it's probably not one to hold for too long."
