Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.8%

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

Deep red colors with violet hues. Rich and dense on the nose. Good structure, and complex. Graphite, spices, and black fruit that ends in a long and rich finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Pedriel Vineyard Selection is a blend of 60% Malbec, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot aged for 16 months in French oak. It has a very smooth, seductive bouquet of black cherries, cassis and violets that is pure and seamless. The palate is medium-bodied with sensual, rounded tannins. It is embroidered with crisp acidity and a harmonious black cherry, boysenberry and mineral-rich finish that handles the oak in its stride."
92 Points

"Intense stuff, with foresty, forceful aromas of blackberry, black cherry, char, mineral and toast. The palate is quite thick and dense, with baked and spicy blackberry flavors offset by herbal notes. Concentrated and minty, with a bullish finish."

Learn About Finca Perdriel

Finca Perdriel was born in Mendoza over one hundred years ago as the first farm of Bodega Norton. The soil layer is thinner than the region’s average resulting in lower water retention, which gives rise to more concentrated fruits.
