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

A modern style Reserva, with deep, comlex flavors and aromas.

Produced from 75% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano and 10% Cabernet and Grenache. It is aged 20 months in 60% French oak (coming from the barrels used for Selección and Expresión), and 40% American oak.

Complex aromas with hints of red berries, smokiness from the fine wood. Flavorfull and velvety in the mouth, well structured and a long elegant finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bodegas Izadi’s 2006 Reserva was sourced from 60+ year-old Tempranillo vines aged 14 months in American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a lovely perfume of violets, spice box, incense, mineral, and blackberry. Elegant as well as structured on the palate, it has the balance to evolve for another 2-3 years and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2021."
90 Points

"Ruby-red. Highly fragrant, displaying scents of blackberry, incense and dark chocolate, with a spicy overtone. Creamy in texture and deep in black and blue fruit flavors, with supple tannins adding shape and gentle grip on the back. Becomes smoky and more floral with air and finishes on a sweet candied violet note. Drinking very well right now; this would be great with braised lamb or a dish containing mushrooms."
