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 this blend, 96% Carmenere is balanced with 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

This is a wine with a very intense, deep red-blue color. It has strong fig and ripe fruit aromas mixed with coffee, toasty and spicy notes. On the palate, it is well-structured and full-bodied, with an interesting combination of oak. A very smooth, harmonious, silky and pleasant wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark ruby red; mineral, scorched earth, and blueberry aromas; layered, dense, and extracted."

Wine-maker notes quite accurate on this one, very silky mouthfeel most notable. Very nice nose, a bit of toast and coffee notes. This is one of a few Chilean wines I've had recently that have been excellent choices for the price. Appears as if they can't charge the premium the italians and french can for good wine, a nice boon for customers.

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....

Learn About Carmenere

Carmenere(car-men-YEHR) Chilean Jewel Carmenere is yet another grape that was eventually exiled from the Bordeaux blend. In the late 1800's, Carmenere was brought over to Chile from France, and it never turned back. For a while, Chilean growers thought this grape was Merlot and labeled their wines as such.
