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

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon release is deep maroon colour with a slight purple hue. The nose shows a stunningly complex purfume, with a level of integration that makes the wine difficult to pull apart. Layers of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit mingle seamlessly with hints of dried herbs and candied orange. The fragrant spicy oak sits beautifully in the background. Succulent blackberry and cassis fruit flavours provide a ripe density to the palate while the oak spice adds a savoury edge. The structure is fine and firm with a freshness of acidity that makes the mouth water and the rich, dusty dry tannins help create a wine of great power, length and persistence.

Critical Acclaim

"Strong colour; ripe cassis and blackcurrant bouquet with some oak in background; medium- to full-bodied palate with identical flavours supported by ripe tannins and quality French oak."
95 Points

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon has just 5% Malbec blended-in. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it gives pronounced blackberry / black currant and bay leaf notes with some dark chocolate and a whiff of cigar boxes. Concentrated, crisp and full bodied with a medium level of very fine tannins, it has a nice long finish. Just beginning to drink now, it should develop nicely over 3-7 years and cellar to 2018+."
91 Points

"Firm in texture, with a juicy feel to the berry and earth flavors, finishing with judicious balance, fine tannins and a lilt to the aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2017"

I love this wine - it is everything I love in Cabernet. Good, rich fruit, cedar, dried savory herbs and a killer structure. Not over the top, not one that I'd throw in the cellar for a long period of time, but this has potential to evolve over the next 5 years or so. Tasting delicious now, with a lovely balance. Something I'd like with a pork roast or even a steak - not too heavy, so not for heavy foods, but a great all around Cab.

Learn About Margaret River

Located in the southwest area of Western Australia, the country's largest state, Margaret River wine growing region is on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean.

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,...
