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

Mount Veeder was the first winery in California to have one vineyard planted to all five Bordeaux varietals. The Mount Veeder Reserve is an elegant statement of the winemaking philosophy that blending creates a wine more than the sum of its parts. Crafted from small lots of exceptionally concentrated fruit from our three ranches, this distinctive red wine is the essence of power and finesse.

Blend: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 3% Malbec

Appearance: Dark garnet red

Aroma: Very dense and brambly. The dark black fruit is complemented by sweet anise, sage, bay and toasty oak notes.

Flavor: Rich, supple and dense, loaded with dark blackberry fruit and ripe mountain tannin. Chewy, big-boned and intense, the flavors fill the pallet and continue with blackberry and coffee notes rounding out the long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"53% Cabernet Sauvignon; 44% Merlot; 3% Malbec. This blend of Bordelais varieties does an exceptional job of capturing both the complexity that its makeup ought to promise as well as also showing the depth and richness of Napa Valley fruit. It is fairly full at entry with a supple feel that leads to balanced cassis and oak flavors and then to a tannic end game in need of cellaring of some six to eight years."
