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 2009 Canoe Ridge Estate Cab is a beautifully balanced wine that offers a classic, fresh expression of Horse Heaven Hills fruit. The wine shows varietal black olive notes with ripe cherry flavors and soft tannins. It is the go to wine that can handle any food.

Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth and polished, with a pleasant cocoa nib note adding interest to the dark berry, currant and gentle herb flavors. Shows depth and distinction. Best from 2013 through 2018. 4,000 cases made."
91 Points

"Scents of India ink and evergreen relax with air into scents of cedar, carob and black cherry. On the palate it remains dense and tightly woven, with a grainy texture that seems textbook Horse Heaven Hills. It needs time, but it is a great buy to set against a steak."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
