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 hearty, bold Cabernet has a deep ruby hue with rich aromas of cedar, plum and festive Christmas spices with a background of vanilla oak. An elegant wine with layers of dark chocolate, toast, deep black cherry and smoke give the wine great depth and balance. The concentrated and well-integrated flavors of this cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon follow through with a long, rich finish.

Enjoy Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled steak rubbed with your favorite spices or sautéed lamb chops and butternut squash.

Critical Acclaim

"Dry and tannic in youth, this Cabernet shows cool-climate influence in the earthiness and minerality that frame the black currant and oak flavors. It's a good wine, with a good structure. Give it a few hours of decanting and drink soon."

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

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,...
