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

The Chento Malbec has a profoundly dark and brooding violet color. On the nose, Chento bursts forth with aromas of black fruits, violets and spices, followed by delicate mineral and graphite notes. This wine has intense flavors of ripe plum and chocolate, with great concentration, velvety tannins and a persistent finish. This wine pairs wonderfully with red meats and traditional pasta dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"A racy red, with a floral edge to the fresh crushed black cherry and raspberry ganache fruit. Well-focused, with a long finish that pumps out undertones of spice, flowers and graphite."
