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%.

Critical Acclaim

"One of the finest Cabernets I have tasted from Washington (albeit from a barrel sample) is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Klipsun Vineyard, sourced from a highly regarded terroir planted in 1984. There are only four barrels (less than 100 cases) of this dense, exceptionally concentrated, beautifully proportioned Cabernet. Medium to full-bodied (14.6% alcohol) with a sense of elegance, it will reward 6-8 years of cellaring and will offer a drinking window extending from 2017 to 2028+ upon release.
Range: 94-97"

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.
