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

This distinctive blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Sangiovese, and 10% Petite Sirah may be Napa's finest interpretation of a proprietary red wine from Italy's Tuscan coastline. A dense ruby/purple color accompanies sweet notes of black fruit, charcoal, licorice, new saddle leather, and dried herbs. This rich, multi-layered, medium to full-bodied red possesses a lush, hedonistic mouthfeel, complex aromatics, and a fabulous finish. This is the real deal! Enjoy it over the next 6-8 years.

Critical Acclaim

"A richly flavored, smoothly textured wine that weaves together lots of pretty currant, cedar, coffee and blackberry fruit, but is also quite expansive. Well-focused, it's complex and concentrated without being too heavy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah."

"At first this is very woody, bordering on sappy. But with time the wood softens, leaving ripe and bright cassis, plum and black cherry. The finish is toasty and creamy. And while it feels full and hearty, the wine isn’t hard or tannic. An interesting blend of Cabernet, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah."
