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

Purple red with deep violet tones. It has a bouquet of berry fruits, plum jam, coffee and tobacco notes. The wine is elegant and powerful on the palate with velvety tannins.

Complements steaks, roasts, pasta dishes with robust sauces, and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Golden Reserve Malbec is intense on the nose, with roiling blackberry, raspberry leaf, Provencal herbs joined by a tang of marmalade that all blossom with aeration. The palate is full-bodied with succulent red cherries, strawberry and blood orange. The definition is outstanding from start to finish, culminating in a refined but intense, opulent finish. Magnificent! Drink 2013-2020+."
