Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Smooth & Supple

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

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

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

100% Garnacha from Navarra (hence the "G"), this wine is intensely purple-colored. Wild bramble-berry aromatics of wild raspberry and deep black cherry hint at its hidden complexity. The 75 year old vines yield a concentration and purity exceeding the expectations of its price point. Light tannins and acidity give way to a savory, lengthy finish. A great drink now and likely even better in the next several years.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Puntazo is sourced from 75 year old vines in Navarra. Purple-colored, its aromatics of black cherry and raspberry leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine has excellent breadth and concentration, light tannin, and a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. "

What a fabulous wine. The entire G or Grenache series and M Monastrell series are nothing short of awesome. These are truly undervalued wines. Stock up while you can.

This grenache was the driest I've ever tasted. It's hardly "smooth and supple" as someone at wine.com has suggested. Rather, this wine immediately dries your entire mouth and when you swallow there's little to remember. All traces vanish instantly leaving you wondering what the heck just happened. I'm used to a full-bodied, fruity grenache but the Vinos Sin-Ley Puntazo 2007 left little to be desired and was, in short, patently unremarkable.

worst wine I have ever had, opened it up and it smelled moldy-tasted moldy. I called and they sent another bottle to replace the one I thought was bad. The replacement was just as bad. It was supposed to be fruity with very little tannins. However, it tasted like fermented laquer. NOT RECOMMENDED
