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 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the massive blockbuster from a vintage that produced nothing but massive blockbusters on the ranch. Phenomenal structure demands attention, while the palate explodes with concentrated fruit. Despite its heft, the wine is also supple, expressing flavors of blueberry, plum, cherry and forest floor. The blend is 77% Rock Arch Cabernet, with its characteristic blue-black hue and powerful but ripe tannins, blended with 14% Rim Rock Cabernet, 8% Carolyn's Cabernet, and just 1% Petit Verdot to add brightness and balance.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a slightly more brooding and formidably endowed effort displaying more extract, tannin and structure. In spite of its massive size, concentration and extract, it possesses gorgeously sweet tannins as well as a sense of equilibrium. This powerhouse will benefit from another 1-3 years of bottle age and should keep for 15 or more years."
95 Points

"A rich, savory style, thick and concentrated, offering firm cedar, black licorice, mineral and graphite, with a touch of espresso and tar. Full-bodied, chewy and complex, very backward now but sure to reward."
94 Points

"Deep medium ruby. Pure, lively aromas of blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate and smoked meat. Dense and lush, but with lovely energy and lift to the flavors of currant, licorice and herbs. Really lovely fruit here, with suave, ripe acidity and firm but sweet tannins giving the finish a juicy sweetness not currently displayed by the 2007, which is bigger and more powerful but less showy today."
94 Points

"Utterly delicious, so soft and refined. It’s like blackberry and cherry pastries and cookies melted into wine, enhanced with squirts of cassis, anisette and chocolate sauce. Defines the California, and moreover the Pride Mountain, style, a flashy, flamboyant wine..."

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.
