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

Impressive for its intensity and elegance, the 2008 Feather offers generous aromas of ripe blueberries, black fruit and mocha with smoky notes of cedar and tobacco. A complex palate of dark plum, cherry, clove and licorice glides smoothly over refined tannins and creamy oak nuances. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Critical Acclaim

"Randy Dunn's Feather has an intriguing floral component, and the aromas are complex and intense, though the wine is wound up tight. Let it breathe and it delivers elegant, focused flavors, precisely defined berry and cassis fruit, with a long and harmonious finish."
94 Points

"Good saturated dark red. Cassis, blackberry, blueberry and licorice on the youthfully medicinal nose. Dense, suave and sweet, with lovely inner-mouth black fruit perfume and a cool note of licorice. Flavorful but very subtle wine, finishing with broad but serious tannins and lovely aromatic persistence. Like the 2007, this wine made under the direction of Randy Dunn seems a bit more flexible in the early going than the cabernets he crafts on Howell Mountain."
93 Points

"The 2008 Feather is a multi-regional 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made by Randy Dunn of Napa Valley renown. Sandalwood, licorice, dark chocolate, Asian spices, and black currant aromas set the stage for a tight, structured, well-balanced wine that requires another 4-5 years to fully unwind. This lengthy effort should see its 20th birthday in peak condition."

"Youthful and a bit raw, but lively with juicy blueberry, currant, bay leaf and crème brûlée flavors that are nicely knit as the finish lingers with moderate intensity."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
