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

The 2008 Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon opens with notes of black fruits, cassis and black currants. The fruit forward aromas are pronounced in the youth of this wine which promises elegance as complex herbal layers of juniper and bramble characteristic of Spring Mountain follow on the nose. Vanilla and Chinese five spice flavors as well as similar notes mirrored from the nose are introduced on the huge, plush, powerful palate that has a lingering bittersweet chocolate finish.

Winemaker Chris Millard suggests pairing the complex layers of flavors in this Cabernet Sauvignon with a grilled New York steak. It is also a perfect accompaniment to roasted game meat like boar.

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 6% Syrah, 1% Merlot, 1% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals more creme de cassis and black currant characteristics along with good acidity, sweet tannin and a Bordeaux Right Bank aromatic and flavor profile. Soft, round and less structured than the vintages of 20 years ago, it should drink nicely for 10-15 years. "

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making.

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

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,...
