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

Opening with a brilliant golden-yellow hue and a gentle stream of tiny bubbles, the 2001 DVX is complex, rich and nicely balanced. Toasted brioche with a hint of oak spice greet you on the nose, followed by green apple, ripe peaches and fresh raspberry on the palate. A lovely vanilla creaminess on the mid palate ends with a lingering, refreshig finish. Overall, it balances complexity and power with an elegan finesse in the signature DVX style.

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous, Champagne-like sparkling wine. As good as the 2000, it's rich and silky, with a very fine mousse and rich citrus and yeast flavors. Needs time. Give it at least five or six years in the bottle, if you can keep your hands off. "
94 Points

"A delicately complex sparkling wine, building power and richness. Aromas of Asian pear, toasty spice and laom lead to layered lemon curd, hazelnut and brioche flavors that balance crisp acidity with a luscious texture. Drink now through 2014. "

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