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

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah

Maycas Cabernet Sauvignon is bright ruby red in color with aromas of red cherry, plum, and blackberry mixed with hints of white pepper, coffee and toasted bread. Full-bodied and dense with black fruit flavors that peak in the velvety and endless finish.

Enjoy with prime steak, stews and grilled and roasted meats such as pork and veal.

Critical Acclaim

"Ruby-red. Pungent, smoke-accented aromas of cherry, licorice and musky herbs. Juicy and taut but also showing good ripeness, with fleshy cherry and spice flavors supported by a nervy spine of acidity. Picks up darker fruit character and sweetness with air and finishes with fine-grained tannins and a suggestion of cherry compote. This looks like it could actually take a few more years in the cellar."
90 Points

"The heat of the vintage marks this syrah, more than the cool-climate character of Limarí. Even so, this voluptuous and chocolatey red seduces with its roundness and generosity of ripe flavors."
90 Points

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....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
