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

Deep violet with garnet edges. Intense dark fruit, coffee, dark chocolate and spice notes. Well-balanced and elegant; well-integrated fruit, tannins and acidity; persistent, long finish.

Pairs well with lamb, red meats, game and is a great accompaniment to cheese boards.

Critical Acclaim

"This red is dark, yet very fresh and well-balanced, exhibiting a racy mix of cassis, boysenberry and blueberry coulis notes tightly wound around fine tannins and a firm, minerally spine. Layered flavors of spice, smoke and wildflowers expand in the long finish. "
95 Points

"Get prepared for another star wine from this Patagonian winery. Fresh berry, graphite, cola and toasty aromas lead to a big and smooth palate with supercharged black fruit, herb, toast and mocha flavors. It’s spicy, dry, balanced and not the least bit out of shape. "
93 Points

"The 2010 Noemia has a bouquet so pure and complex that, to be brutally honest, it really put the 70-odd wines tasted previously in their place. It soars with pure dark cherries, blueberry and blackberry fruit with crystalline delineation. The palate is seamless on the entry, with supple blueberry and cassis fruit. The acidity is a little lower than I might have wanted, although the finish is undeniably seductive and luscious, with hints of white pepper lingering on the aftertaste. What you might call "controlled hedonism.""
