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 Aurielle Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, dark, and red/purple in color with vibrant clarity and an unctuous texture. The nose is typical of Howell Mountain Cabernet and features ripe plum, cedar, tobacco, and white pepper. On the palate, the core of boysenberry, plum and cassis that defined the 2006 Aurielle remains but the fruit flavors are brighter and more layered and there is a bit more acid to compliment the intense fruit.

Well extracted and dense, the initial essence of the 2007 is stonefruit and cassis which gives way to a layered mid-palate of blueberry, cedar and black cherry and a long lingering finishe layered with hints of vanilla, cardamom and tobacco. The mouthfeel is rich and velvety with firm, fine-grained tannins and provide excellent structure. Fruit/acid balance is superb and speaks to the attention to winemaking detail.

Critical Acclaim

"A new discovery for me, Aurielle Vineyards’ 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with the hallmarks of the 2007 vintage, exuberance, opulence and pure fruit. With abundant creme de cassis notes, medium to full body and silky tannin, it should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 10-15 years."

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. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
