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 color is deep red with a dense black center, and the nose gives tantalising aromas of chocolate, blackcurrants, with hints of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. It is a beautifully rich Cabernet with superb depth of seamless fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Here you must read 'Barossa' as including both the Barossa and Eden valleys, the latter distinctly cooler than the former, but both with nooks and crannies providing a welcome home for cabernet sauvignon - and if anyone knows where they are, it's Peter Lehmann. The wine has the stature and structure missing from the red wines in this range, with notes of herb, mint and earth adding interest to the core of blackcurrant fruit. It has good tannin balance and a nice touch of oak. It's good to go now."
88 Points

"Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon has mint and bay leaf hints over notes of warm cassis, blackberries and tree bark. Full bodied with a good amount of expressive cassis flavor in the mouth, it has a medium level of grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drink this one now to 2015. "

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.
