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 vintage offers a wine of deep concentration and plush velvety texture. The nose begins with the scent of nutmeg, followed by cascades of red cherry, currant, and black raspberry. As the wine opens it reveals layered aromas of a blackberry cordial, cedar, chocolate and brown sugar, with hints of black tea and bay laurel. Full bodied and rich, the wine has a supple mouth coating texture and abundant soft tannins. The finish entwines flavors of red currants, sour cherry, blueberry jam and boysenberries with cinnamon and cocoa powder.

Blend: 99.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, .5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Rich, intense and well-centered, with vibrant blackberry, cedar, crushed rock and tobacco leaf flavors, ending with ripe, chewy tannins and good length."
92 Points

"At almost five years of age, this Cab still tastes young and fruity. It's incredibly dense with cherry pie, mocha and buttered cinnamon-toast flavors--distinctly New World--yet balanced with fine acidity and complex, ripe tannins. Drink it now with a great steak, simply prepared, with a brown butter sauce."

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,...
