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

Ruby red with a purplish touch. On the nose, it presents fresh red fruits aromas, prune, raspberry, vanilla great varietal expression. Chocolate, dulce de leche. Great structure and volume in the mouth, great persistence, fleshy and juicy tannins, good acidity, well balanced between wood and variety. Spicy and mineral.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Las Loicas Reserva Malbec was also produced with organically grown grapes and received the same elevage as the Cabernet. Medium purple in color, it displays an enticing nose of cedar, cinnamon, lavender, incense, and black cherry. This is followed by a medium-bodied, elegantly styled Malbec with a velvety texture, spicy fruit, lively acidity, and a lengthy finish."
