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

2007 was a very good year on all fronts, for both Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Proof positive: this dark, richly flavorful black currant yumster that boasts excellent balance and structure. We source grapes from Sonoma Valley mountain vineyards for this blend, as well as lots from Alexander Valley and Dry Creek. This vintage also has a good amount of fruit from Bedrock, Joel' vineyard in the banana belt of Sonoma Valley, which contributes its high-toned elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark red. Spicy, herb-accented cherry and blackcurrant on the nose. Bitter cherry and licorice flavors are framed by supple tannins and become sweeter with air. This is less tannic than the merlot, with a softer, more loose-knit finish but greater finishing cling."

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
