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 diverse terroirs of four hallmark vineyards (Beckstoffer To Kalon, Hyde, Stagecoach and Beckstoffer Dr. Crane) harmonize in dense concentration for a multi-dimensional cabernet sauvignon of great depth and length. Aromas of lavender, anise and baker's cocoa are the prelude to a firmly-structured, deep garnet palate of black currant, cassis and fresh tobacco. Subtle floral accents and bolder graphite notes persist through the mid-palate, leading to an earthy, lengthy finish that finds tannins and subtle acidity in perfect balance.

Blend: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"The least expensive effort is the opaque purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. A blockbuster, it offers up classic notes of charcoal, subtle smoke, black currants, black berries, lead pencil shavings, and earth. This deep, opulent, full-bodied Cabernet possesses terrific purity as well as length. It should drink well for 15+ years. "
93 Points

"Here is an altogether classic Napa Valley Cabernet in terms of structure, balance and keen, ripe-currant character. It starts with lovely, layered aromas of pure fruit, sweet toast, black soils and briar, and its lengthy, impressively filled flavors exhibit especially keen focus. It is fleshy and full-bodied and exceptionally well-balanced from beginning to end, and its combination of loamy terroir and ageworthy structure in many ways recalls very good left-bank Bordeaux. This is one is a keeper and is best set aside for at least five or six 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 area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. 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.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
