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

In recent years, Stagecoach Vineyard has become one of the most renowned vineyards in Napa Valley. It rises 1,200 feet above sea level and continues to climb to nearly 1,850 feet at its highest elevations on the southern side of the Oakville appellation's Pritchard Hill and Atlas Peak. Blessed with south-facing slopes filled with shallow, volcanic soils, the site's rugged terroir is ideal for growing intensely colored cabernet sauvignon.

My favorite vintage of the decade for Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. We were graced with outstanding growing conditions that gave way to a wine with pure, focused flavors black cherry, currant, and tobacco, while a mid palate of spice vanilla and mocha linger in layers, all framed with velvet-like, dusty tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"This bottling, from the vineyard high up on Atlas Peak, is establishing itself as a real benchmark. The '07 is smooth and rich and vast in flavor, offering waves of blackberries, cherry pie, cassis and blackstrap molasses, with a delicious coating of sweet, smoky, oak. It's impressive in youth but so balanced it should easlity negotiate the years."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. 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. 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,...
