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

93% Cabenet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot.

The 2006 vintage started with a cool wet spring and late bud break, followed by mild summer temperatures that allowed for longer than normal hang times. The result was picture perfect clusters and wines with good intensity, concentration and balance. Our 2006 Cabernet is no exception. The fruit comes from the sustainably farmed Brix Vineyard in Oakville and is blended with a small amount of Petit Verdot from Stags Leap and Merlot from Oak Knoll. The wine was aged in a combination of new and used French Oak for 20 months.

A well-structured blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot, creating classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of red and black fruit, black cherry, plum, dried flowers, and hints of vanilla and spice from the well integrated wood. Rich flavors of bright fruit, cherry and vanilla combine with sweet tannins that coat the mid palette. The finish is long and soft. The wine is ready to drink and enjoy now but will continue to develop well over the next 3-5 years.

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,...
