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

The 2012 Santa Alicia Reserva Pinot Noir displays red ruby color with clean and complex aromas of dry cherries, plums and strawberries. Notes of cinnamon and butterscotch. Good volume, firm tannin, expressive and complex.

Pair with grilled Albacore. Grilled chicken and all pasta.

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas are restrained with notes of cranberries, red cherries and wet earth, as well as a hint of leafiness. Palate is ripe, rich with black cherry and a hint of sweet liquorice. Very appealing indeed. Not the finished article but a nice, savory style, self-contained and persistent."

Style: Light & Fruity
Pair with: Pork tendrloin with fig balsamic glaze, Med Cheese and Forelle pear
Great value for the money, though I'm a bigger fan of their Cab and Carmenere offerings. Good core juice, on the lighter side, a little vinous, but an easy glass for summer quaffing.

Hallow, thin. Not my favorite, not sure how this wine received such a high WS score.

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....
