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, brillitant red color. Ripe and aromatic, this wine has an explosive nose with intense red fruit expression. On the palate, it is fine and elegant, with a good balance of alcohol and acidity. Black and red cherry flavors, surround sweet earthy notes. A long, rich and smooth finish due to the very ripe and soft tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright medium red. Aromas of red berries, cherry and spicecake show accurate pinot character. Supple and a bit loose-knit but offers plenty of plump red fruit flavor and a touch of bitter chocolate. The finish betrays a hint of bitterness. This is good value for the variety."

Exploring South America is our passion. Not content to continue growing grapes in the same regions we always have, we set out more than two decades ago to explore new lands, curious to see how different soils and climates would affect our favorite wine varietals.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
