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

Deep ruby red colored with an intense bouquet of wild red fruits and spices, well-structured and powerful. This wine may be enjoyed as early as you like, but no doubt it will improve during the next ten years.

Critical Acclaim

"Certain past vintages of this La Mancha Cabernet have been a little green and lacking. But in 2004 the wine is ripe and Californian in style. It smells of spice cake, berry jam and cassis, while the palate is grabby and mildly tannic, with molten black-fruit flavors. Finishes a bit medicinal and sweet."
92 Points

"The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals black currant and blackberry aromas and flavors along with excellent balance and several years of aging potential. Drink it from 2012 to 2019.

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,...
