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

With an intense ruby red color with violet tones, the nose is intense and concentrated, with cassis and raspberry notes from the Cabernet Sauvignon, sweet spice from the Petit Verdot and black raspberries from the Malbec. The mouth feel is full and rich, with excellent complexity and notes of tobacco and vanilla from French oak aging. The finish shows stony minerality and well-integrated tannins.

Malbec 70% - Cab. Sauvignon 20% - Cab. Franc 7% - Petit Verdot 3%

Critical Acclaim

"This jammy red is offset with juicy acidity and an aromatic spice undertone with candied cherry and dark plum notes, leading to a finish of espresso and licorice. "
91 Points

"Bright red-ruby. Black raspberry, licorice and bitter chocolate aromas are accented by pepper and herbs and lifted by a violet nuance. Juicy, spicy and quite suave, with a restrained sweetness and a silky texture to the understated flavors of black fruits, spices and mocha. Gentle in the middle, then firmly tannic and serious on the long, broad, chocolatey back end. A very successful blend."
91 Points

"The 2011 Reserva Sinergy Blend consists of 70% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot aged in French oak for 12 months, of which 20% is new. It has a clean, pure bouquet of baked black cherries, licorice and wet clay that is well-defined. The palate is full-bodied with dense, toasty black fruit infused with white pepper and burnt toast. It is very bold and grippy to the finish, with dry tannins that are aggressive at the moment, although they will be tempered by another year in bottle. This should turn out to be a fine Mendoza blended wine, but it needs aging. Drink 2014-2020. "
