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

Medium-deep cherry red with garnet highlights and dense, persistent legs. Attractive, highly intense aromas: notes of red fruits, raspberries and flowers. Aeration reveals cedar, spicy and smoky notes, anise and red pepper, evoking its time in the cask, plus the slight sweetness of candied fruit and mineral notes. Unctuous and full-bodied. Mature tannins are immediately apparent on the palate and linger in the mouth. Balanced acidity. Long, pleasant finish with hints of cherry sweets.

Blend: 35% Tempranillo, 30% Garnacha, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"The red wines begin with the 2009 Gotim Bru, a perennial Best Buy in this journal. It is a blend of 5 grapes featuring 35% Tempranillo and 30% Garnacha aged for 10 months in French and American oak. Aromas of underbrush, brier, spice box, lavender, and assorted black fruits leads to a mouth-filling wine with good balance, some complexity, and 1-2 years of aging potential (not that there is any reason to defer gratification)."
