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

Beautiful, very dark ruby red color with a soft mahogany rim. Exquisite aroma, reminiscent of bilberry and cherry jam, enhanced by toasted notes acquired through aging in oak. The palate reveals an extraordinary dimension, with soft, juicy tannins that hold promise for the wine's future evolution.

Critical Acclaim

"Saturated ruby. Musky aromas of cherry compote, plum and dark chocolate, with vanilla and tobacco topnotes. Sweet, pliant and deep, offering intense dark berry and floral flavors brightened and sharpened by cracked pepper and smoky minerals. Finishes long and sweet but focused, with a hint of licorice and slow-mounting, velvety tannins. This is the most successful bottling of this iconic Spanish wine I've had in many years."
92 Points

"One of Spain's most character-packed wines, this vintage of Mas La Plana deals bacon, berry and earthy aromas in front of a weighty, fairly tannic palate. Becoming richer and riper as it unfolds, this is full of prune, plum and earthy stewed-berry flavors. It gets better and shows more complexity with air. Drink now–2018."
