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

The gorgeous dark and dense magenta hues give sense to this wine's concentration and power. The bouquet is loaded with intense aromas of cassis, hints of dry mission figs, and ripe plum compote that mélange in harmony, enhanced by cedar and leather scents. The palate is lush with savory dark fruit and a hint of sweet oak and black pepper. The wine is well structured with soft tannins that envelop the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright medium red-ruby. Inviting, fruit-driven aromas of black cherry, cassis, mocha, pipe tobacco and menthol. Rich, silky and seamless, with lively flavors of dark fruits, tobacco and exotic spices. Finishes with broad, fine-grained tannins and good verve. This attractive midweight offers considerable early appeal."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
