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

This is definitely a Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of character and personality, right from the start with its beautiful and concentrated ruby red colour. Intense notes of plum, cassis, and blueberries, combined harmonically with softer earthy traces, mocha and smoked hints. Full, complex and intense with persistence and elegance at the end.

Critical Acclaim

"This dark and winey red shows a muscular core of roasted fig, espresso, crushed black currant and loam notes, which rumble through the tobacco-filled finish. Rock-solid and very Maipo in style. Drink now through 2013. 180 cases imported."

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 Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
