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

Intense and expressive, the 2009 Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon reveals lush olallieberry, satsuma plum, crème de cassis and ripe Rainier cherry character. Nuances of bittersweet chocolate, violet, mountain sage, nutmeg and toffee complete the multilayered aromas and flavors. This wine's complexity of flavors and graceful balance reflect the delightful 2009 vintage. The mouth-coating, fine-grained tannins provide vibrancy to the flavors midpalate and then turn plush on the expansive finish, inviting another sip.

Critical Acclaim

"Quietly, Hewitt flies below the radar, often producing Cabernets that, while not cheap, rival their pricier competition. Consider their ’09 a deal. It’s dry, smoothly tannic and complex, offering waves of black cherry jam, mocha, licorice and smoky oak. You can drink this lovely wine now, but it should develop in the bottle over the next 10 years.
