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

High-toned nose of violet and vanilla, with ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit. Stays bright and open-knit though the finish, with spice and graphite notes.

Perfect for red meat courses cooked any style.

Blend: 95% Malbec, 5% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Dark, complex and inviting, with palate-coating crushed plum, wild berry and cassis notes woven with layers of sandalwood, graphite and grilled herbs. Well-structured, with fine tannins on the long finish. Malbec, with a touch Merlot. Drink now through 2020."
93 Points

"The 2011 J Alberto has a rich, decadent bouquet of macerated red cherries, dark chocolate, heather and crushed rose petals. The palate is lush and fresh on the entry, with pure, mineral-rich red berry fruit laced with citrus peel and orange zest. It is very well-defined and harmonious, with a caressing finish that retains fine poise and focus. Excellent."
91 Points

"As juicy as a malbec can be, this vibrates with red fruit that leaps over the tongue with youthful energy. It's cool, approachable and deliciously spicy. Ready to drink, this wine has enough acidity to stand the test of time. J. Alberto is a selection from vines planted in 1955."
