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

Opaque deep red with an alluring crimson edge, our 2006 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon doesn't hesitate to offer big fruit-forward aromas of blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, and plum accented with clove, vanilla, roasted coffee, and a lifted note of cedar. This wine stays rich and big on the palate. The round, full midpalate leads to a finish that offers ripe, youthful tannins evoking dark chocolate.

This wine, which promises to age well for decades to come, is wonderfully expressive with food. We recommend Greek lamb moussaka, wild game, barbecued prime rib, and beef short ribs.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. 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. 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.
