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

While some people say, "any port in a storm", we strongly suggest ours. Montevina Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Port displays aromas of raisined berry fruit, sugared dates, chocolate, caramel and orange peel. The wine's rich, lush, grapy flavors also evoke raisin, cocoa, coffee and toffee. This delicious, fortified wine is perfect onits own or as an accompaniment to chocolate, chocolate, chocolate...don't like chocolate? Try it with Stilton cheese and toasted walnuts.

Critical Acclaim

"The first duty of a Port-style wine is to be dazzlingly rich and sweet, yet balanced in acidity, and this bottling is all that. Waves of blackberry jam, cassis, and dark chocolate are brightened with zesty acidity and the sweetness level is very high."

A beautiful Zinfandel Port. The rich flavor of the Zin offsets the sweetness perfectly and I now have a new favorite nightcap. This wine with a square of your favorite dark chocolate is guaranteed to raise the corners of your mouth. Also is good friends with coffee. One night out, I finished my meal with an espresso and when I got home, I had a small glass of Terra d'Oro and the essence of the two drinks danced lightly with each other until my head hit the pillow.

Pair with: Chocolate
Terra d' Oro Zin Port was wonderful, everything it claims to be, sweet, fruity, well balanced, Yum! I served to a group of lady friends with rich chocolate cake- a great pairing. Even some non-wine drinkers liked it. Can't wait to have this again!
