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

Made with full extraction and long skin contact, this wine is made to maximize body and weight while having long silky tannins. The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a beautiful depth of deep red-purple color. The nose shows aromas of black cherry fruit with a touch of sweet vanilla and a hint of mint. In the mouth, the wine offers rich flavors of blueberry and blackberry on the palate and echoes the vanilla bean note brought forth by the French oak. Tannins are soft and supple with a rich round mouth-filling finish.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot

A rich wine with medium full body. I know 2006 Atlas Peak got 94 pts from WE however the 2006 is overbearing tea and tobacco flavors for my pallet? However, and a big however is, try the 2007 Atlas Peak. It is fabulous!! Carries body, classic cabernet and balance. Lots of depth and mild tannins for long term aging and improvement!!

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.
