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

Unoaked, from carefully chosen lots suitable for drinking young. Deep wild berry aromas and mouth filling flavor and length are provided by the old Tempranillo vines. Tannins are ample but balanced by the textural richness and juicy fruit. A superb value.

Critical Acclaim

"Bodegas Gormaz's unoaked 2009 Tempranillo is purple-colored with aromas of pencil lead, spice box, and blackberry. Flavorful and mouth-filling, it is a substantial effort that is also an excellent value. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. "
