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

The Emilio Moro was aged in French and American oak for 12 months. It has a superb bouquet of smoke, roasted herbs, scorched earth, and blackberry. Layered on the palate, it has tons of fruit, plenty of spice box notes, a firm structure, and 2-3 years of aging potential. .

Critical Acclaim

"Hidden behind the candied red fruit scents and sweet spice, there's an intriguing taste of char, like the scent of a fire pit, focusing the fruit along a tense, tannic spine. A distinctive style of Ribera to serve at the end of the meal with cheese.

"The 2007 Emilio Moro is the Bodega's most traditional wine, aged for 12 months in French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, the nose displays cedar, Asian spices, leather, incense, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense and concentrated on the palate with excellent length and several years of aging potential, it is an outstanding value in serious Ribera del Duero wine."

"Ripe, clean black cherry and berry notes are juicy and crisp in this lively red, with licorice and mineral accents adding depth. A fresh, modern wine with purity and focus. Drink now through 2016. "
