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

Dense flavors of black cherry, baker's chocolate, black olive and dried herbs are followed by structured tannins and acidity that will allow the wine to age gracefully for the next 5-10 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Cade's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain boasts excellent depth and richness, both supported by firm mountain tannin. This attractive Cabernet is a good introduction to Cade. The only thing it lacks is a little more mid-palate juiciness, the issue with so many 2010s from Howell Mountain. Today, the 2010 comes across as a bit compact, but I expect the wine to always be a little on the lean side. I have to say, Cade’s 2010 was much more impressive when I tasted it last year from barrel. The 2010 is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot from a variety of sources on Howell Mountain, roughly 73% estate or estate-controlled and 27% purchased fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."
91 Points

"Savoury, meaty, focused nose of dark fruit and bitter chocolate. Rich and concentrated palate but not too dense, with grippy tannins and a big bold finish. A good future – one to look out for.
Drink 2014–2030 "

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. 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,...
