Monte Xanic Cabernet Blend 2011
Bordeaux Red Blends from Mexico
This Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot blend begins with herbal tomato aromas, leafy touches and spice notes. It's a lot like basic Bordeaux, but with a creamy feel, rubbery tannins and more overt oak. This finishes with mocha, coffee, chocolate and peppery flavors.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost 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%.
