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

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"The purple-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 13% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot. It was aged for 33 months in 65% new French oak. It displays an alluring bouquet of Asian spices, incense, wood smoke, mineral, black currant, and blackberry leading to an elegant, velvety-textured, concentrated wine. There is enough structure and balance to permit another 5-7 years of positive evolution and it should be in its prime from 2015 to 2030. "
94 Points

"Good medium-deep red. Plum, flowers and nutty oak on the nose, plus a suggestion of celery seed. Dry and sharply delineated, conveying a glyceral texture without any thickness or heaviness. This boasts a firmer spine than the red blend as well as lovely clarity of flavor for the vintage. Most impressive today on the very long, slowly mounting finish. Corliss's best lots of cabernet sauvignon, mostly from Dionysos Vineyard, go into this bottling. "
