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

Deep dense dark and brooding in color with a rim of purple/black in the glass. The nose shows cassis and is loaded with savoury spices. The palate is generous with excellent tannin structure and lovely cassis fruits. The wine is big and rich, yet surprisingly elegant and a very long lasting after palate. Gentle dusty tannins on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon gives a deep garnet-purple color and incredibly fragrant, lifted blackberry and blackcurrant scents with complementary notes of spice box, wilted rose petals and a bit of mint. Crisp acidity and a medium-firm level of very fine tannins structure and harmonize the full bodied, lush fruit on the palate, leading to a long savory finish. Drinking now, it should keep to 2016+. "

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
