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 wine has an exceptionally intense bouquet where the aromatic woods compete against black cherry, chocolate, vanilla and licorice. On the palate, it is flavorful, well-structured, full-bodied, and luscious. There is great structure and complexity as well as a long and full finish.

Pairs well with game meat casseroles, cured cheese, stuffed peppers, lasagna, roasted meats, such as leg of lamb, pork, tederloin, grilled steak...

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Quixote Merlot (60%) – Tempranillo (20%) – Petit Verdot (20%) spent 12 months in French and American oak. Opaque purple in color, it offers up a sexy aromatic array of Asian spices, incense, cherry blossom, violets, black currants, and blackberry. Smooth-textured, layered, ripe, and pleasure-bent, this well-balanced savory offering will evolve for several years but can be approached now."
