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

Elements is a portfolio of red wines that combine winemaking passion with the flavors and characteristics of multiple varietals grown in select vineyards across the prime wine regions of Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Shaped first by nature, and then forged by the winemaker's blending choices, Elements wines are multi-faceted and complex, a testament to what can happen when many become one.

23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot, 18% Malbec, 11% Garnacha, 2% Petite Sirah, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Graciano, and 1% Cabernet Franc

Appellation: 65% Sonoma County & 35% Napa County

This finely crafted blend of varietals of three famous wine regions – Bordeaux, Rhone and Rioja – is brimming with lively dark cherry, ripe plum, cassis and juicy blueberries wrapped in a spicy bouquet of cinnamon, white pepper, clove and faint hints of black truffles. The flavor is true to the aromas and the texture is silky and supple. The wine is ready to enjoy now, yet has the structure to age gracefully for several years.

Critical Acclaim

"A very nice red wine for drinking now with foods from all sorts of ethnicities and styles. Made from a bunch of varieties, including Cabernet, Grenache and Tempranillo, the wine is dry and tannic, with deep flavors of blackberries, black currants, anise and sweet, smoky sandalwood. Editors' Choice."
