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

This wine offers fresh, red fruit notes, including raspberries and cherries, with subtle touches of sweet spices, cinnamon and clove, from barrel aging like. On the palate, the wine is firm yet smooth, with tannins that add structure and volume in the mouth. The wine has ripe, sweet, spicy flavors, with soft notes of leather, tobacco and cedar on the long and elegant finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Dense, layered, thick fruit; very concentrated, intense, and lengthy; cellar for 2-3 years."
90 Points

"While the fruit flavors have ripened toward licorice and chocolate, on the whole this is a flavorful, well-balanced wine. The tannins contain it, feeling tense and fine. A cabernet for the winter, with a beef stew."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
