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

Our Central Park West Vineyard, named in a nostalgic nod to the New York City origins of the Trinchero family, is located at the southern end of the St. Helena appellation. This 22-acre vineyard is a level site with deep, loamy soils, good sun exposure and excellent air circulation—the ideal situation for producing classic Napa Valley Cabernet.

Even though this wine bears a New York City name, it screams Napa Valley. In 2008, we hand-picked this vineyard multiple times over a three week period. With these valley floor origins and warm St. Helena climate, this is an opulent, eminently drinkable Cabernet with great dark color. Luscious red currant and black fruit aromas intermix with vanilla and blackberry cobbler like flavors leading into a satisfying, smooth finish with subtle hints of white pepper.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Central Park West (the name is apparently a tribute to the Trinchero family's home town, New York City) comes from a 22-acre vineyard planted in the deep, loamy soils of the valley floor at the southern edge of the St. Helena appellation. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by earthy, Provencal garrigue-like notes intermixed with high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco. This is the softest, easiest to drink, most precocious and evolved of the 2008 single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. Medium to full-bodied and seductive, it is ideal for drinking over the next 10-15 years. "

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
