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

Dark, rich and ripe fruit notes of blackcurrant and ripe plum combine with dark chocolate, spice and a hint of rose petal. The palate is solid, dense and luscious, with great structure, velvety tannins and a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Notable for richness and depth of flavor, the hallmarks of a well-grown and well-made wine. Show classic Napa tannins, ripe and firm, with deep, lush flavors of blackberries, black currants, cassis, anise and cedar. Very fine now but young, and should develop bottle complexity..."
92 Points

"Smooth, rich and polished, showing layers of mocha-laced currant, blackberry and black cherry, with shades of anise and herb, framed by tight cedary oak and chewy tannins. Drink now through 2017. 4,529 cases made."

Had not had in a while. Just as good as remember, but still not sure justifies the $40 price. Definitely a great bottle.

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,...
