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 classic Cabernet aromas of black pepper, cedar, slight herbal and berry notes are evident in the nose. This is a medium-to-full bodied wine with a soft, balanced mouth feel and flavors that are similar to the aromas. All the above lead to a pleasing, soft, berry-vanilla finish. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The perfect accompaniment to a wide range of foods, especially the steaks and beef that are typical of Argentine cuisine.
