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

Maroon cherry red color. Aromas of jam and wood, spicy notes. This is a wine with character and persistance. A blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo.

Accompanying roast meat or meat in sauce, stews and cured cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"From one of Rioja's largest producers, this has the size, weight and pedigree of a Gran Reserva in a good vintage: It's ripe with touches of volatility in the plummy fruit, toughness in the baked earth of its tannins and a lasting savor of black fruit and minerality. This has the depth to age for several years. Best Buy."
