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

Inky, deep violet / magenta. Brooding and boldly concentrated - almost a 'dark Cabernet paste'. A 'Blackcurrant concentrate' descriptor has been mentioned at more than one tasting! Barrel fermentation cues, yet little overt oak evident - a nuttiness (almond, Amoretti biscotti) and char/toast coupled with a flash/ anointment of formic & volatile acidity, and malt. Pomegranate/mulberry pip meshed with rhubarb & spice. Firm, full-bodied. Intense, replete with a rigid tannin structure, grip. Barrel fermentation characters gilded/framed by espresso & bitter chocolate masking any suggestion of the use of 100% new oak. Truly complex - a continuum of dark ripe fruits giving way to an impressive palate length and a 'residual' Cabernet flavour. Elements of rhubarb, blackcurrant, soy and the faintest suggestion of mint are reluctantly emitted - this wine will only reveal more with age / patience.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich, ripe and focused, this is impressive for its transparency, delivering a lively mouthful of currant, plum and blackberry fruit shaded with spicy, delicately herbal overtones. Finishes with length and elegance. Best from 2010 through 2016. 800 cases imported."

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,...
