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 intense ruby color. Complex aromas, where outstanding red fruits intermingle with notes from aging: tobacco, truffle and vanilla. Good concentration with a long finish. Has body and good acidity, a characteristic of Tempranillos from the Rioja Alta region.

A perfect pairing with vegetable dishes, rice dishes, cheeses, duck and oily fish.

Critical Acclaim

"Dill, vanilla, tobacco, earth and light red-fruit aromas comprise the classic nose. The palate feels tight and in good shape, while a mild berry flavor comes topped with touches of cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg, expressing Rioja in every way. "

If this makes any sense it has a bright flavor, almost citrus like for a red wine, cherry and raspberry flavors.
