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 supple and lush wine immediately opens to flavors of blackberry, clove and hints of vanilla. The medium bodied palate is balanced with flavors of eucalyptus, sweet plums, ripe cherry and hints of tobacco, while the finish is accentuated by nice acidity and subtle oak flavors. Drinkability: Now to 2015.

I’m very excited about this wine, because it represents the best value we’ve posted on this website to date. While technically not a second label of Signorello, Edge is a side project between Ray Signorello Jr. and three of his childhood friends, so the pedigree is certainly there. This Napa Cabernet is deep ruby in color and is bursting with aromas of dark berries such as black current, black cherry and raspberry. There are also hints of ripe strawberry and chocolate with a vanilla bean undertone. The palate brings in the pepper and spice and well integrated oak. I really like how the winemaker balanced the oak and grape tannins. This is a well made wine that blows away most other Cabernet Sauvignon in this price range. For $20, I’d buy it by the case. Food Pairing Suggestions: I’d like to take this Edge and pair it with a beautiful rib eye cooked medium rare with some veggies on the side. Serve that to your special someone and you’re good to go for the night. It simply doesn’t get any sexier than a big hunk of red meat and a stunning bottle of wine. For a little less amorous pairing try it with a nice hamburger or a roasted rack of lamb. Because there is a touch of sweetness in the wine, I could also see bringing this out at dessert with a dark chocolate soufflé.

Very nice cab, especially for the price. Very smooth, very flavorful. My favorite local restaurant was serving the 2007 Edge by the glass, and it was always a treat to have a glass with their steaks. The 2008 is just as good at home with a grilled New York Strip, Filet or Rib-Eye. I definitely recommend Edge for those interested in a moderately -priced, excellent tasting California cabernet.

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...

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,...
