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

Kaiken Ultra Cabernet has an intense ruby red color. The wine showcases red fruits flavors with black cherry aromas accompanied by chocolate and spices that enhance its elegance and complexity. On the mouth, there is a unique combination between the Cabernet Sauvignon's intensity, provided by the vines located in our vineyard in Agrelo, combined by the silkiness of the tannins given by the old vines found in the first zone. This wine has a very long finish. Its aftertaste shows chocolate notes and caramelized, condensed milk (or dulce de leche) flavors.

Recommended to accompany strong flavored foods like lamb, beef and pork meats and gourmet pastas.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon from Vistalba sees 12 months aging in new and used Nadalie and Saury oak. It has a lifted, mocha-tinged blackberry nose with fine definition, a touch of peppermint emerging with aeration. The palate is well-balanced, with edgy tannins cutting through the thick black cedar and tobacco infused fruit. The finish is bold and brassy, yet retains fine balance with hints of black coffee and tertiary notes on the long aftertaste. Excellent!"

Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
