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 Galvo Garage offers an exotic array of classical Cabernet characteristics: blackcurrants, dark cassis notes, and an underlying mix of dark chocolate and earthy minerality. As the wine opens there are perfumed notes apparent with cherry, prune, violets and fine cedar oak. The ripe palate has an impressive elegance, alongside abundant structure and richness of fruit with a fragrant dark chocolate and minerally dry finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 The Galvo Garage is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 21% Petit Verdot, and 6% Cabernet Franc aged for 12 months in a mix of new and seasoned French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays aromas of spice box, violets, pencil lead, and black currant. Medium to full-bodied and structured on the palate, this concentrated effort will evolve for 2-3 years and drink well from 2011 to 2019."
