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

Bright, but dark with deep red and violet nuances. Very elegant, complex, strong characters of Carmenere, with aromas of red ripe fruit, spicy, with hints of tobacco. Great structure, mouth-filling, sour chocolate, sweet tannins, powerful and concentrated. Dense, oily with lots of fruit giving a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"If Carmín seduces with its buxom generosity, the 2007 Terrunyo feels more like a quiet beauty. This is Recabarren's deuxième vin, a selection from the Peumo Vineyard planted in the mid-1970s on the northern bank of the Cachapoal River. A sophisticated carmenère, as if tailored in black tie and tails, this has a structure based on a fine mesh of tannin that supports tart black fruit flavors. It hints at herbal notes and whispers of sweeter fruit aromas. Decant this if you open it now for game dishes like braised partridge; it will benefit from six to eight years' aging."
95 Points

"The fruit for the purple-colored 2007 Terrunyo Carmenere (which contains 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc) was sourced from Block 27 of the Peumo Vineyard in Rapel planted in 1987. The wine was aged for 19 months in 70% new French oak. It offers up a captivating bouquet of sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, floral notes, black plum, and blackberry. This sets the stage for a full-bodied, dense, plush, full-flavored, incipiently complex Carmenere that has the balance and structure to evolve for several more years. It will provide optimum drinking from 2015 to 2022. Both vintages are approachable now which is a good thing because readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off these two beauties."

"Lush and full. with deep blackberry, black currant and Mediterranean black olive flavors. Drink now through 2012. "
92 Points

"Sleek and polished, displaying a pure, racy core of raspberry, black cherry and black currant fruit, laced with alluring black tea, mineral and tobacco notes. Very stylish. Drink now through 2012."

First time trying this grape as a varital. A beautiful big and bold lucious wine. Amazing color and flavor complexity. I am now a big fan of Carmenere.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Carmenere

Carmenere(car-men-YEHR) Chilean Jewel Carmenere is yet another grape that was eventually exiled from the Bordeaux blend. In the late 1800's, Carmenere was brought over to Chile from France, and it never turned back. For a while, Chilean growers thought this grape was Merlot and labeled their wines as such. But in the early nineties, thanks to DNA...
