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

Cherry red color covered with clear violets around the rim. The nose is very intense and complex. Red fruits of raspberry and strawberry, black ones of blackcurrant, mulberry and blackberry. Elegant fine oak, subtly toasted with notes of black licorice. Fleshy with sweet tannins that give volume, and with a long aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Hito is 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) aged for 8 months in large French oak. It sports the rich fruit of the great 2009 vintage along with enticing aromas of cedar, mineral, tapenade, violets, and blackberry jam. Savory, ripe, and balanced in the mouth, it is an excellent value..."
90 Points

"Bright ruby. Red and dark berry aromas show very good clarity, with spice and floral notes providing added lift. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Finishes bright and long, with resonating spice and cherry notes. This wine is quite suave, and surprisingly drinkable now, but it has the balance to age."
