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

From 5 to 15 year old vines, this entry-level Ribera from Emilio Moro sees around 4 months in oak, giving it a more youthful presentation of red and black fruit aromas and flavors. Chewy, with prominent, velvety tannins, well-balanced acidity, tangy blackberry fruit, dark chocolate, espresso and cinnamon.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Finca Resalso was made from the estate's younger Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) vines and aged in French oak for 4 months. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a nicely perfumed nose of violets, spice box, leather, and black cherry. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with plenty of savory fruit, an easy-going personality, and excellent depth. This lengthy effort actually has 2-3 years of aging potential but can be enjoyed now. It over-delivers in a big way. "

Bitter cherry, zingy oak at back of mouth. Bit 2 dimensional, bit of alcohol heat. Some better tempranillos on here at this price. Check out the fantastic Volver!
