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

This 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep reddish brown color with focused fruits such as cherry and blackberry yielding to long and supple tannins on the palate. This is a complex, dense and well-balanced wine that can cellar for at least 10 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Dense and detailed, with a well-focused core of dried currant, graphite, plum, blackberry, espresso and herb character. Firm and full-bodied, with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the fruity flavor themes. Drink now through 2022. 857 cases made."
92 Points

"A very rich, dramatic, indisputably Napa Cabernet. The fruit is ripe in blackberries and cassis, the tannin structure is vibrant and living, and the oak application is superb. A fashionable Cab that should develop over the next eight years."
