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

Bouquet of ripe red fruit is well integrated with toasty/balsamic notes, firm structure from a great vintage retaining plenty of stuffing for the cellar.

Tempranillo 90%, Graciano 10%.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Lorinon Reserva is sourced from vineyards in Rioja Alta and Logrono: a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano aged for 24 months in American oak barriques. It has a pungent nose of blackberry, leather, dried herbs and a touch of wild fennel. The palate is very well-balanced, with supple tannins that glide across the mouth. The acidity is finely tuned, leading to a very harmonious, natural finish with subtle woody notes in the background. This is a superb Rioja Reserva."
