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 ruby-red in color, Sena 2007 presents a nose rich in ripe fruits such as strawberries, plum, and cassis, along with a touch of black pepper and sweet spices that add complexity to the blend. The palate shows fine, firm tannins and complex flavours of fruit, oak, spices, thyme, bay leaf, meaty notes, and a bit of tobacco that intermingle harmoniously and extend out onto the long finish. This is a wine with lively acidity and great tannic structure that will certainly gain complexity and elegance with time in the bottle.

Blend: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carmenere, 12% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"The fruit is sourced from Sena's biodynamically farmed vineyard with the 2007 Sena made up of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carmenere, 12% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It puts forth an enthralling bouquet of sandalwood, underbrush, exotic spices, incense, floral notes, blueberry, and blackcurrant that borders on kinky. Already remarkably complex on the palate, with layered flavors, a plush palate feel, and precision balance, this beautifully rendered offering will evolve for another 6-8 years and provide a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2032.

I actually bought this y accident thinking it was a pinot noir! A fantastic experience with brunch definately earned its rating! Deliciously fruity with such supple oak, tannins and that amazing hint of tobacco...bought 2 more to store ;) Recommended as a delicious close cousin of pinot noir.

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....
