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 nose is met with lush aromas of creamy baked cherry, crushed cranberry, vanilla, boysenberry, cola, milk chocolate and cinnamon bark. This medium bodied wine has pronounced flavors of berries, cherries, spice, currant and toast. A supple entry highlights velvety tannins and the long finish is accented by sweet cream, milk chocolate-covered cherries, vanilla, hints of cedar and toasted oak.

Critical Acclaim

"Drinks immature and gangly now, a fresh young Cab that needs time to knit together. It's all there, though, from the ripe blackberry, cassis, cherry marmalade and cappuccino flavors and sweet, vanilla-infused new oak to the firm, sweet young tannins. Very fine, high-class wine. Should blossom by 2009, then evolve for many years."
92 Points

"The silken texture of this wine's tannin gains elegance with air. Those tannins are potent, yet so smoothly incorporated into the fruit that together the impression is round and clean. Decant it for steak with sautéed mushrooms."

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,...
