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 2010 GOTT 10 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has complex aromas of blackberries, black cherries, mocha and dried flowers. The flavors are elegant with balanced acidity and integrated tannins. The wine opens with dark, concentrated fruit on the palate, velvety tannins on the mid-palate, followed by a long and silky finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Gott 10 impresses for its focus and cut. There is beautiful delineation in the aromas and flavors. Blackberry jam, grilled herbs, smoke and melted road tar are all layered into the precise, yet powerful finish. This isn’t as generous as many other 2010s, but it is quite beautiful just the same as it continued to open up and flesh out with time in the glass. The 2010 is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. "

Style: Big & Bold
Big, dark purple-red color, full bodied. The nose starts out on the medium-small side but grows with air and time. Lovely varietal character with boysenberry and oak primary aromas and secondary notes of cedar, leather, cassis. Big, mouth-filling flavors; fruit, acid and tannin to spare, a slight hint of bitterness in the finish which is more of an asset to the complexity than a liability. There is too much alcohol in both the nose and flavors for me right out of the bottle but and hour or two after opening this is not so prominent and the nose is coming on nicely. It will reward patience, I'd recommend drinking it from about 2018 on and for many years thereafter.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

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,...
