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

The Canoe Ridge Estate Cab is a beautifully balanced wine thatoffers a classic, fresh expression of Horse Heaven Hills fruit. The wine offers black current flavors, hints of sage and elegant tannins. The cooler vintage in 2010 led to an enhanced "Old World" restrained elegant character.

Critical Acclaim

"Also beautifully complex and slightly more focused, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge Estate is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance a mix of Merlot, Syrah and Malbec. Coming from vines planted in 1991 and located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, close to the Columbia River, it delivers notions of red and black fruits, spice box, flowers and background herbs along with a medium-bodied, richly textured mouthfeel that carries solid depth and ripe tannin. More forward and approachable than the Cold Creek Vineyard, it should drink nicely over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2018. "
91 Points

"Supple and distinctive, with meaty overtones to the core of rich currant and coffee flavors, lingering on the polished finish."
90 Points

"This 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance of Merlot, Syrah and Malbec, is immediately accessible with notes of char, roasted coffee bean and cherry. The palate is rich, chocolaty and seamlessly stitched together."
90 Points

"Good dark red. Musky currant, licorice, cedar, sage and a whiff of chocolatey reduction on the nose. Fairly smooth, pliant and deep, boasting good richness to its redcurrant, herb and milk chocolate flavors. Plenty of sexy oak here but it's supported by ripe fruit. Finishes with suave, edge-free tannins and lovely lingering sweetness."

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,...
