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

Sandalwood, hazelnut, and powdered cocoa spicy aromas waft around a core of plum and dark stone fruit. Lively black plum and blueberry flavors transition seamlessly to a walnut, toasted almond finish. This elegantly balanced will continue to bring pleasure for years to come.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a blend of the various vineyards Conn Creek has access to. It is a splendid testimony to the winemaker's ability to take disparate lots and make them harmonious. Just a beautiful Cabernet, dry and softly luscious, with complex blackberry, black currant, anise and cedar flavors. A wonderful experience now, and it should develop in the bottle for several years.

The Conn Creek '07 Cab delivers what many under $20 Cabs from California lack. It has purity of fruit, with notes of cedar, spice and a touch of herbs. Balanced, complex and well-integrated, this wine tastes as a good Cab should. I was super impressed when we tasted this to feature on the site. $20? Yes, please! We decanted it with dinner, paired it with a steak and enjoyed it immensely.

This is a fine Cabernet that, like many, needs some time to develop. Plenty of fruit and acidity, but will improve on balance over time.

Conn Creek was founded in 1973 and immediately established itself as one of Napa Valley's premier Cabernet houses with the release of its 1974 Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery name comes from its location, next to Conn Creek near the Rutherford Crossroad that connects the Silverado Trail with Highway 29. Conn Creek specializes in limited production Bordeaux varietal wines exclusively from Napa Valley’s best vineyards. Present production remains at fewer than 6500 case per year.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

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,...
