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

Cherry colored. Intense nose, with floral and ripe red fruit notes, accompanied by toasting notes. A rounded attack, pleasant and unctuous, with smooth tannins. Long elegant finish.

Owing to its fruity and tannic characteristics, this wine pairs well with a great variety of meat dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Celeste is 100% Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero aged for 12 months in French and American oak. It offers up an already complex nose of cedar, exotic spices, incense, lavender, espresso, and blackberry. This is followed by a supple, spicy, ripe, layered wine that will evolve for another 3-4 years and drink well through 2021 if not longer.
Range: 90-93"
