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

This outstanding Cabernet Franc comes from a special selection of vines that are over 40 years old. We define this memorable wine with good structure, balanced tannins and delicate toasted aromas from the oak barrels in which it was aged for 16 months. This wine was not stabilized nor filtered to preserve the natural intensity and expression of the fruit. Because of this you might find subtle deposits. It should be decanted in order to fully appreciate its uniqueness.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red-ruby. Complex nose melds blackberry, licorice, violet, menthol, herbs, pepper and chocolate. Broad, rich and smooth, with dark fruit, chocolate, pepper and herb flavors complemented by nutty oak. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and subtle, lingering pepper and herb nuances."
