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

Menguante Garnacha is produced from grapes that have been grown on 80 to 100 year old vines. The subdued dark fruit and mineral aromas carry into the lush, plum flavors with ripe chewy tannins. The persistent finish features balanced acidity and sweet fruit tannins. Serve at room temperature.

Critical Acclaim

"The purple-colored 2008 Menguante Garnacha was sourced from vines averaging 80 years of age and aged for 5 months in French oak. It sports an inviting nose of cedar, tobacco, cinnamon, clove, and cherry. On the palate it displays outstanding concentration, layers of savory fruit, and plenty of volume. It has the structure to evolve for 1-2 years but is approachable now. It is a great value. "
