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

Deep ruby red in color, with a complex aromatic combination of ripe fruit and well integrated oak. Rich and smooth with great length and finesse.

Serve with red meats, game and cured cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Especial Reserva spent 24 months in French oak. Deep purple in color, it offers up an alluring bouquet of earthy minerality, cigar box, rose petal, Asian spices, and blackberry. Medium-bodied, savory and well balanced..."
91 Points

"Dense and roasted on the nose, with tobacco, leather, mild herbal notes and blackberry fruit. The palate is packed but a little bulky, with smacking flavors of plum, blackberry, pepper and herbs. Finishes with leather and heat."
