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 blend of varietals and vineyard sites with a variety of soils, clones and rootstocks bring enormous complexity to this wine. On the nose, cassis, dark cherry, plum and blackberry mingle with notes of white pepper, sage, cinnamon, cedar and dark chocolate. Fresh, juicy fruit flavors coat the palate, with sweet spices skirting the edges. A streak of bright acidity lifts the mid palate while fine tannins create weight and a smooth, silky texture. A dazzling, multi-dimensional Napa Valley red.

Blend: 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
