Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Handcrafted, limited production Napa Valley wine made with grapes farmed and harvested from Morisoli Vineyards in the Rutherford appellation, this wine exhibits the classic black cherry bouquet and deep garnet color of the terroir. The mosaic of flavors weave cocoa and vanilla, ripe red fruits and spicy toasted oak with red licorice in a robust but silky texture. Subtle tannins deliver a wine of true varietal character that will continue to grow in complexity and richness over the next 8-10 years.
KaDieM Cabernet pairs perfectly with tri-tip sandwiches, slow cooked beef roast, mushroom risotto with root vegetables or a large tray of semi-hard and hard aged cheeses or rich, dark chocolate cake.
"Even better is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts a black/ruby/purple color as well as deep notes of charcoal, lead pencil shavings, black currants and blackberries. Deep, full-bodied, rich and impressively well done, this super Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon can be drunk over the next two decades."
The Wine Advocate
"Deep and rich with firm structure and lovely plum, spice and notes of chocolate, complex and supple with intensity and elegance; fresh and balanced with toasty oak, ripe fruit and excellent style; long and classic. "
"As notable for its layered complexity and varietal precision as it is for its intensity, concentration and sturdy, but well-balanced, architecture, Kadiem’s 2010 Cabernet hits all the right varietal marks and is thoroughly compelling wine. It is full, fleshy and optimally ripened, but it is wonderfully well-controlled and hints at the first signs of polish in a way the sparks high confidence in its future, and, while a little unruly just now as any really good young Cabernet can be, it has our attention and is bound to earn more as it deepens and become even more expressive over the next eight to ten years."

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...

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
