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

Dark red velvet, saturated color, reminiscent of heavy theatre curtains. The first act for this wine unleashes a veritable symphony of powerful aromas: chocolate, cassis, forest floor, cedar and roasted espresso bean. The palate is weighty, constructed with densely layered ripe mountain tannins and flamboyant flavors of ripe blackberry and dark plum. Boasting tremendous length, the finish offers fine grain tannins and flavors of dark cocoa, cherry and espresso.

Critical Acclaim

"Opaque ruby. Explosively perfumed bouquet of cherry-vanilla, blackberry, mocha and cola, along with a powerful incense note. Broad, creamy and penetrating on the palate, offering sweet dark fruit preserve flavors enlivened by smoky, spicy nuances. Clings impressively on the finish, which echoes the mocha and dark berry notes. Very substantial wine but I get no sense of undue weight. There's 7% merlot in this year's blend."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

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. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
