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

Another stunning value from Yecla, the 2010 Vinos Sin Ley Monastrell (100% Mourvedre from organic vineyards) possesses a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of blueberries, blackberries, and chalky, earthy soil, and a heady, rich, full-bodied finish. It combines elegance with richness despite the fact that this area is known more for the rusticity of its wines than their finesse. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby-red. Fresh aromas of violet, raspberry, blackberry and dark chocolate. A firmly structured, spicy midweight, with dense cherry and blackberry flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Finishes on a juicy, sweet note of dark berries, with good spicy cut."
