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

2009 Gallo Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex wine with intense layers of blackberry and currant, framed by hints of chocolate and spice. Velvety tannins meld with hints of warm oak to create a long, supple finish. Gina Gallo chose to blend the Cabernet grapes with Petit Verdot to enhance the overall structure and add a deep richness to the mouthfeel.

Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Gallo Signature Series wraps around the palate in the layers of mocha, chocolate, plums tobacco and sweet spices. The 2009 is round, supple and inviting from start to finish. Sweet floral notes meld into cloves on the rich, resonant finish. This delicious, harmonious wine should drink well for at least the next handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. "

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

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