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 Malbec has a deep purple color, with a high intensity of blackberries, blueberries, plums and milk chocolate. Ksana refers to the Buddhist idea of infinity in an instant. Likewise, they believe at the moment of tasting a wine, one experiences its vineyard's history and winemaking process. The correct combination of these is what will make a wine last in your memory forever.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Ksana Malbec is very closed at first, but it opens with lush dark cherry, violet and cassis aromas. The palate is silky smooth, with a core of ripe black fruit laced with creamy new oak, and a satisfying, creamy finish. This is easy drinking but is well-made. "
