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

The appellation lies above the town of St. Helena on the eastern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains that separate Napa Valley from Sonoma Valley and the Santa Rosa Plain. Spring Mountain is similar to the Mount Veeder AVA due to the cool weather prevailing and smaller diurnal (day and night) changes. The vineyard is located at a 1,600 feet elevation with primarily weathered volcanic soils, with high drainage. The mountain terrain along with it's cool weather pattern create an environment for Cabernet Sauvignon to have intense dark fruit flavors, satiny tannins and great aging potential.

If you have ever listened to Paco de Lucía, one of the masters of the flamenco guitar, you know that he can create a tableau of sound that, unlike that of any other guitarist of his era, possesses complexity, subtlety, power, and resonance.

The 2007 Lokoya Spring Mountain takes you on a similar journey—with the palate rather than the ears. The floral component, Italian soaked cherries, toast, minerality, and integrated fine tannins instantly transport you across a myriad of experiences.

Critical Acclaim

"A classic mountain-styled effort is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain. Blueberries, acacia flowers, and lavender make appearances in this offering as well as a strong minerality, a subtle hint of oak, endearing elegance, medium to full body, a textured, layered mouthfeel, and superb purity, length, and overall equilibrium. This 2007 can be drunk now or cellared for 25 years.

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,...
