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

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.

This inaugural vintage is perfectly timed with a season that offered beautiful balance and tannic structure that rivals Bordeaux. Aromas of violet, black cherry and blackberry rise from the glass. The palate boasts a broad range of flavors that is a continuous progression of fresh blackberry, currant, espresso bean and bitter sweet chocolate, followed by oak spices reminiscent of a sweet cigar box mixed with toasted hazelnut coffee. These flavors linger with fine grain, velvet-like tannins; the finish has tremendous length and persistence.

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.
