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

Intensely red with violet tones, with earthy, forest floor and bittersweet chocolate aromas. Elegant and smooth with black cherry liqueur on the edges and a touch of vanilla from the oak. It is well-structured but graces the palate with soft, sweet tannins and good acidity on a closely-knit frame. This isn't a summer sipper for by the pool. Grab a real cloth napkin, a knife and fork, and put on some music so you can complete the mood for a great eating/drinking experience.

Critical Acclaim

"A selection from young vines in the Alto Agrelo region, this classic malbec has everything you might expect from the variety: violet scents, intense, tart cherry flavors, a soft texture and sweet tannins, as they say in Mendoza. The depth of flavor lasts through the finish, extending the pleasure of drinking it."
92 Points

"The opaque purple 2008 Malbec was aged in a mix of new and seasoned French oak and in tank. It displays a superb aromatic array of cigar box, cinnamon, incense, black cherry and plum. Medium- to full-bodied, on the palate it is smooth-textured, round, dense, and layered, The fruit is succulent and the wine has excellent depth and length. Drink it over the next 4-6 years."
91 Points

"Good medium ruby. Pure aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and violet. Silky, very ripe malbec, with very good lift and precision to the sweet cherry, mocha and truffle flavors. Finishes with a sexy note of baking chocolate and surprising grip."
