Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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

Zaco's vinification is based on achieving maximum fruit and freshness through cold pre-maceration, fermentation at lower than normal temperatures (24ºC) and two weeks' maceration. The wine is then left to mature in American and French oak until it is reaching its full potential.

Intense, bright cherry with violet hues. Initial dominant notes of black fruits,violets and liquorice followed by the underlying spicy notes of barrel ageing - vanilla and clove. Full-bodied with a long, fresh finish

Critical Acclaim

"This polished red delivers black cherry, espresso and mineral flavors in a silky texture over firm tannins. Leafy and floral notes linger. Not powerful, but has intensity. Drink now through 2014. 20,000 cases made."

Learn About Vina Zaco Map ItMap It

Viña Zaco is the rebellious new Rioja from Bodegas Bilbainas—a Rioja with a contemporary twist. Zaco takes its name from one of the oldest vineyards in Bodegas Bilbainas in the Rioja Alta. But that's where Zaco's links with the past begin and end. With its abundance of fresh red berries, notes of liquorice and faint undertones of spice, Zaco is the ultimate modern expression of Rioja.
