Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
A big wine from a high extraction vintage. The aromas are incredibly open and inviting. Super concentrated black cherry and berry fruit with cedar and sage notes. Volcanic soil shows through with big broad intense spiciness and warmth. Silky in the mouth with light dusty tannins throughout. Oak is used here as an accent lending some toasty, vanilla flavors as well. A rich and complex wine from a blockbuster vintage.
"Displaying a dense ruby/purple color, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a striking nose of black currants, plums, licorice, earth, white chocolate, and spice. The beautiful aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, rich, concentrated wine redolent with creamy tannin and an opulent, lush, smooth style. Typical of this vintage in California, it already reveals considerable complexity as well as the requisite depth, concentration, and balance to age 12-15+ years. "
