Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Our 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted to highlight the best qualities of our five estate vineyards. Dark rich and extracted this wine has aromas of cassis, black cherry and currants. Balanced oak nuances add both a 'sweetness' and roundness to this aromatic and powerful wine. Extraordinarily complex, while amazingly rich and smooth in the mouth,offers superb richness and balance. Builds in intensity. The huge finishing fruit coats the entire palate.
"The brilliant 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is the real deal. Incense, forest flowers, black fruits, and crushed rock, jump from the glass of this inky purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, dense, and voluptuously textured, this is a beauty, a superb bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well young but age 15-10 years. Bravo!
The Wine Advocate
"Tight, firm and concentrated, this is well-focused on a core of earthy blackberry, currant, dried herb and cedary oak. Full-bodied and well-proportioned, with excellent structure, depth, length and persistence. Drink now through 2020."
