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

Hard to believe but it's been ten vintages since the inauguaral release of Miner Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon back in 1996. The '06 release is something to celebrate... masses of ripe berry fruit with purity and finesse. A superb expression of Oakville hillside fruit. Barrel aged for 21 months in 60% new French oak, drink this beauty through 2020.

Critical Acclaim

"Both better filled and somewhat tougher in style than its partner from the Stagecoach Vineyard, Miner's Oakville bottling scores big points for its very evident depth and its decidedly generous fruit. It firms up at the end and runs up against lots of gruff tannins, yet its abundant, oak-enriched fruit never wavers and is easy to spot all the way to the end. At least three to five years need to pass before this one even begins to fulfill its considerable promise."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

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,...
