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

Above the fog line at 1,500 feet, this is an incredibly beautiful, yet stressed vineyard that produces trademark Mt. Veeder characteristics. Dried cherry, dried herb, briar patch, tobacco and tea aromas are complimented by plum, wild cherry and forest floor flavors with pronounced tannins and a long finish. This is a wine that I think has incredible cellaring potential, but as 2007 is my first vintage with this fruit, we'll have to be patient. However, this wine, like all my wines, should drink well upon release too.

Critical Acclaim

"A lovely Cabernet, brimming with complex blackberry, cherry, mineral, tobacco and cedar flavors that impress for their sheer power. Shows the firm, hard tannins this mountain always lends Cabs, but they're so finely ground, the wine is drinkable now with a good decanting. Should age well for a decade."
95 Points

"Part of a collection of single-vineyard wines Mario Monticelli makes for the Trinchero Family, this is a foresty cabernet, intriguingly ripe and extensively oaked. The pungent mineral tannins have softened up in the oak, the wine lush and delicious, pareticularly with lamb."
91 Points

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Cloud's Nest, which comes from a parcel on Mt. Veeder, displays a dense ruby/purple color, like most of the other wines, and plenty of truffle, mineral, and earthy notes intermixed with blackberry and cassis fruit as well as some Chinese black tea. The wine is dense, full-bodied, but again, relatively tannic and backward. This is a fascinating wine that needs 4-5 years of cellaring and should drink 20-25 more years. Impressive. "

Nicely balanced wine. Smooth. Not quite as spicy as I would have liked but good. Would do it again.

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...

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,...
