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

Inky red, tinged with thick purple hues. The nose opens with fresh mixed berry fruit and ripe cherry aromas with hints of violets and crème de cassis. Toasted baking spices, dusty cocoa, coffee and graphite add enhanced layers of complexity. Firm but soft velvety tannins are balanced with the natural fruit acids to keep the palate lively. Blackberries, concentrated blueberry, and subtle toasty oak flavors persist through a lengthy finish. This is a rich, full-bodied, strikingly proportioned, beautifully textured, elegant and nuanced wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The gorgeous, dense purple-hued 2004 Vineyard 29 Cabernet Sauvignon (a 370-case blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a beautiful bouquet of white chocolate, black cherries, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. Medium to full-bodied, with supple tannin, and amazing elegance, power, and richness."
95 Points

"Good deep ruby-red. Complex aromas of black fruits, licorice, tar and meat. Lush, large-scaled and rich, with impressive sweetness and concentration to the very round, almost roasted fruit flavors. Finishes with huge but very fine tannins. A wonderfully round wine with a sexy oak component. The best vintage to date for Chuck McMinn's steadily improving wine, from a steep east-facing vineyard just down the road from Grace Family Vineyards."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
