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

As Santa Ynez Valley's first estate winery, Firestone helped pioneer viticulture in this quiet, rural area. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, dark and weighty with mocha, cola, berries, vanilla and spice.

Critical Acclaim

"A lovely Cabernet, soft and slightly herbal, but elegant, with plenty of food-friendly character. It’s moderate in alcohol by California standards, with subtle blackberry and black currant fruit touched with smoky oak. A nice followup to the equally fine 2009 vintage."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
