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

Soft and silky, our 2007 Napa Valley Merlot shows deep, scarlet color and exceptionally full, lush red-fruit character—signatures of both the stellar vintage and the notable vineyards in the Los Carneros and Oak Knoll regions.

The long, fruity finish, laced with autumn spices, ends with a lively cranberry zing.
