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

Cuvaison's Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the winery's Estate owned vineyard, some 1,200 feet up the slopes of Napa Valley's Mt. Veeder. Th e schisty, gravelly, well-drained hillside soils severely restrict the yields, producing Lilliputian quantities of solid, jam-packed Cabernet backed by vibrant acidity and fine, mountain tannins.

Aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, violets and mocha. The palate has floral and black fruit notes dominate with rich, jammy fruit. Overall, a big, full throated Cabernet Sauvignon with inky fruit and chewy, supple tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautiful Cabernet, whose mountain origins show in the fi rm tannins and concentrated blackberry and black currant fruit. Notes of minerals and violets complicate things, as does rich oak. Very fi ne and delicious, but obviously needs time in the cellar. Should develop well over the next 6–10 years. Cellar Selection"
93 Points

"The vibrant, youthful color parallels this wine’s blueberry blue fruit and sunny scents of violets. Then the extract submerges that fruit in a pungent mineral bath. The sunniness and the berry flavors rise up out of the extract for moments at a time, suggesting the balance this wine should achieve with several years in the cellar."

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,...
