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 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 is dark garnet in color. Aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, violets and mocha. Floral and black fruit notes dominate the palate, with rich jammy fruit to round it out. A big Cabernet Sauvignon with inky fruit and chewy, supple tannins.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"A sleek, soft cabernet, this hints at its mountain origins in scents of green peppercorn, black mushroom and beefy tannins. For now, the plum skin flavors and round, fruity richness lend those tannins sweetness, turning them toward dark chocolate. Give this a few years in the cellar and it should grow more expressive."

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,...
