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

A Bordeaux blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon: 76%, 12% Merlot, 7.5% Malbec, 3% Carmenere and 1.5% Petit Verdot.

Like the previous year, 2006 was a long, cool growing season with a late harvest in our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. As in 2005 these shallow soiled hillside vineyards were still quite able to produce a small crop of very ripe grapes. The harvest began in the final week of October, but with warmer conditions proceeded at a brisk pace, finishing at the end of the first week of November; a week earlier than in 2005. The wine is a bit more lush, ripe, and fruit forward than its predecessor as a result, and yet still has substantial structure.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals slightly sweeter black fruits, more body and length, and a richer, fuller style. Finesse allied with substance as well as authoritative varietal flavor suggest it should keep for 15+ years. "

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
