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

Planted by vineyard manager Mimi Nye in 1991, our vineyard at Canoe Ridge Estate has grown before our eyes to produce more concentrated and opulent wines. This wine shows amazing intensity to go with ripe black cherry fruit. The Canoe Ridge Estate Cab is a beautifully balanced wine that is a classic expression of Washington fruit.

FOOD PAIRING: venison, pork, beef.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright medium ruby. Cassis, blackberry, graphite, mint, dark chocolate and licorice on the nose, with a slightly jammy quality emerging with aeration. Sweet, silky and gently concentrated, with a pliant texture and lovely depth to the berry, mint and chocolate flavors. Rich and impeccably balanced, with nothing forced about it. This sweet, graceful wine spreads out to coat the palate without communicating any undue weight. The tannins are at once fine-grained and firm."

very nice merlot. decant an hour before drinking. the nose opened up nicely, with lots of jammy fruits, mint, minerals, and spices. complex without overwhelming the palate. this wine is fairly dry with good tannins and acid, giving it some weight and balance.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

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,...
