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 Marinus exhibits a vivid deep crimson color and appears nearly opaque. Aromas express beautifully ripened red fruits accented by notes of dried spices and cedar with hints of toasted oak. Intense, spicy flavors of plum and black cherry fill the mouth and linger beautifully through a long and silky finish. Bernardus thinks this is certainly one of their finest Marinus vintages and though drinking beautifully now, will age wonderfully for many years to come.

Blend: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Another successful Marinus from this small Monterey County appellation. Made from all five classic Bordeaux varieties, it’s dry and rich in blackberries, black currants, crème de cassis and cedar, and is more rough in tannins than your typical Napa Cabernet blend."
