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

This elegant and opulently spiced 2009 Reserve Cabernet is sourced from a small collection of hillside and benchland vineyards rooted in the Oak Knoll and Calistoga appellations. Infused with exotic oak, cocoa and clove spices this blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot is powerfully aromatic. Sweet black currant and boysenberry flavors gradually take the backseat to a more muscular mid-palate framed with sinewy tannins and baker's chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

"A wine of great density, focus and concentration, with tiers of ripe blackberry, wild berry, mocha, espresso and black licorice flavors, ending with a tight, firm, fine-grained tannic backbone. Best from 2013 through 2027."

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
