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

Ruby red color. The nose is clean with balsamic notes and a noble wood aftertaste. The palate starts soft, it is velvety in the mouth and has a body with notes of red fruit (raspberries and cherries...). It has a pleasant finish in which the balsamic aftertaste reappears.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Crianza, a blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Garnacha aged for 12 months in French and American oak, sports a very polished bouquet with dark cherries, sloes and fresh fig. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good acidity and impressive structure towards the finish that has a convincing sense of symmetry and focus. This is a very natural, sophisticated Crianza meriting aging. Drink 2014-2020. "

Awesome. Almost a 5 star. Had this in Spain and ordered when I got home from wine.com. Could drink it every day and with about anything (or nothing).
