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

Intense ruby color with ruby hints. Attractive red fruit aromas, like red current and cassis, with complex mineral, cacao and leather aromas. Smooth and subtle, perfect integration of elegant tannins with jammy fruit, creating a perfect balance. It also have a very long, nutty finish.

Reserva 2006 is excellent with roasted meats, game (wild boar, venison, etc) and cured cheeses. Decant the wine one hour before serving.

Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha, 5% Graciano

Critical Acclaim

"Dense and smooth, this maturing red offers plum, dried currant, coffee, tobacco and tar flavors. Shows good depth, with well-integrated tannins. Kept lively by just enough acidity."
90 Points

"Sturdy black plum aromas feed into a dense, juicy, secure palate, with deep flavors of blackberry and loamy plum. The finish is smooth, mature and pure, with lasting berry flavors and integrated oak. Drink now. "
