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

Full bodied and firmly structured with rich, complex layers. This Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of black licorice, blackberries and plums. Flavors of vanilla and soft, silky tannins carry through to the palate for a long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"You can feel the coolness of the vintage in this wine's cranberry scents and floral, grape-skin notes. It's a soft, simple cabernet with enough freshness to hangle the weight of its black tannins. For a steak. "
