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

Bodega Norton Privada is a ruby red color of remarkable intensity. This wine has excellent aromatic complexity with notes of ripe fruit and a fine touch of smoke and coffee. It's rich on the palate with an excellent concentration.

Critical Acclaim

"Solid and brimming with more potential than it's displaying, this Bordeaux-style blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon starts with aromas of graham cracker, lush berry and pastry. It feels perfectly framed by acidity and tannins, with spicy, complex blackberry and cassis flavors. Toasty and a mile long on the finish, drink this from 2014–2020. Cellar Selection."
93 Points

"This dark red really opens up in the glass, with dense notes of blueberry paste, kirsch and spicy plum. There’s grip, but it’s all fruit, spice and light mocha notes on the finish. Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon."
91 Points

"In addition to the varietal wines, Norton also produces several blends. The 2009 Privada is made up of 40% Malbec, 30% Merlot, and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from vines ranging in age from 50 to 80 years old, fermented with native yeasts, and raised for 16 months in new French oak. It is a complex offering with an elegant personality, layers of succulent fruit, ample structure, and 2-3 years of aging potential. This outstanding value will be at its best from 2013 to 2024. "
