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

A stylish classic Coonawarra Cabernet. Medium term cellaring will reveal a complex, stylish wine.Those who drink it now will be rewarded, however the 2004 Jacob's Creek St Hugo will age gracefully and become more powerful and complex for those who choose to carefully cellar it for 5 to 10 years.

Color:Full depth red with crimson highlights.
Bouquet:Lifted cassis and blackberry fruit with dark chocolate complemented by subtle cedar oak notes.
Palate:Concentrated cassis, blackberry and mint flavours combined with spicy cedar oak and youthful, fine grained tannins. The richness and intensity of fruit flavour is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity, and the complexity of the French oak used enhances the dense varietal fruit characters.

Critical Acclaim

"Dense garnet hue. Enticing scents of black cherry, mocha and camphor. Vibrant acidity and juicy flavors of raspberry, cassis and wild cherry. Silky tannins and continued impressions of raspberry and cassis in the long, clean finish."

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,...
