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

Private Reserve 2009 is a lovely garnet color. Aromas of black fruit, including blackberry and black currant, are well layered with notes of vanilla and aniseed. Complex flavor intensity, it shows a wonderful varietal expression. Concentrated flavors of black cherry, plums and blueberry, with hints of vanilla and spicy nutmeg. Very lush texture, with velvety tannins.

Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 5% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

"Firm, tight and dense, with a chewy core of dark berry, fresh-turned earth, cedar, dill, tobacco and black licorice. Maintains a tight profile, ending with gritty tannins."

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.
