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

In 2006, there is an intensely satisfying balance of power and elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Gago from Toro was fermented in foudre and raised in new French oak for 12 months. It has a delightful bouquet of toasty oak, Asian spices, lavender, espresso, licorice, and blackberry. This opulent, buxom beauty will deliver pleasure now through 2018. "
92 Points

"Firm tannins underlie a smooth texture in this silky red. Black cherry, smoke, tar and mineral flavors are balanced and fresh, and this shows good focus and length. Drink now through 2012. 250 cases imported."
90 Points

"Ruby-red. Sexy aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola and oak spice, with a potpourri note gaining strength with air. Pliant, palate-staining dark fruit flavors are attractively open-knit and show very good clarity. The cola note repeats on the sweet, clinging finish."
90 Points
