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

This wine hums with bittersweet cocoa, rich dark chocolate and chocolate-covered blueberries. Deep, ripened black fruits, brambly blackberries, cherry almond and crème de cassis fold together to complete the nose. Subdued, but present tobacco-box spice and sweet oak coats the whole mouth, while polished tannins form the even, consistent finish that makes this one of our most concentrated Wurtele Cabernet Sauvignons to date. Estimated maturity: 2016-2021.

Critical Acclaim

"Stunning, dramatic, but nowhere near ready to drink. Dry and complex in mountain tannins, the wine displays massively deep flavors of blackberries and cassis, and the new oak is substantial and sweet. Try holding until after 2010, and should develop for an additional six years.

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,...
