Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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 and bright color that evokes its name. Ethereal rose petal incense and spicy perfume with a bass note of smoky earth and espresso. Juicy and medium-bodied, it expands and intensifies in the mouth, gaining density and complexity as it is savored. The palate balances red currant fruit and hints of black pepper with loads of mouth-coating ripe tannins that are common in old vine Malbecs. Finishes with smooth, lush tannins, ripe acidity and good length. The ultimate in steak wine. You'd be wise to let this old vine beauty open a bit before delving into it, so get the decanter out for this one.

Critical Acclaim

"Notes of baking spices, licorice and smoke lead in this rich red, sporting a solid core of dark cherry and macerated plum."
90 Points

"Bright medium ruby. Slightly porty aromas of redcurrant, chocolate and exotic spices. Supple and very ripe but not overly sweet, with redcurrant and mocha flavors lifted on the back end by pepper and herb nuances. No shortage of brightness or flavor interest. The chocolatey oak component is apparent on the finish. Winemaker Jimena Lopez previously was in charge of making red wines at Bodegas Norton."
88 Points

Jimena's lifelong plan has been to craft a wine using these principles, so when...

Learn About Argentina

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector. A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...
