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

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot.

The flagship wine of Bodega Weinert, the Cavas de Weinert blend represents our wine philsophy, a fine red wine of great personality.

Under its deep, ruby tone with purple sparkles springs up its stable and vigorous structure. Its tannic richness guarantees its longevity, but a discreet fruit-bearing taste prevails. It offers a full-bodied bouquet. A wine of great distinction, a complex scented blend with reminiscent fragrances of great French oak in which its aged for 3-4 years, which contribute to its elaboration.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2002 Cavas de Weinert Gran Vino is a blend of 40% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Merlot. Supple, elegant, and forward, it has some succulent fruit, attractive spice notes, and good balance. Drink it now and over the next 5 years.

Weinert is a legendary name in Argentina wine circles because their 1977 is recognized as one of the first great Malbecs and received major accolades from Robert Parker. I recently had a chance to taste it again; the wine has stood the test of time very nicely. That said, the current releases of Bodega y Cavas de Weinert are a very long way from that level of quality."
