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

After spending 22 months in new French oak barrels, and another ten months in the bottle, this elegant Cabernet Sauvignon presents seductive aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and spice. Complex, and well-structured, the wine features intense black fruit on the palate, as highly supple tannins introduce rich flavors of chocolate, tobacco, anise and spice through to a long finish characterized by muscle, finesse, and concentration.

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas of blackcurrant, licorice and minerals, plus a whiff of mint. Dense and ripe but fresh, with a distinct delicacy and good verve to the black fruit flavors. Finishes supple and subtle, with very good lift and length. "Our grand prix wine," notes Mary Ann Tsai, who is also president of Luna Vineyards."

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