Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

With an elegant, old world structure, this sophisticated Cabernet shows pretty aromas of dark fruit, earth, and baking spices. A robust core of blackberry and plum with notes of current and sweet tobacco are framed with polished tannins on a rich, harmonious finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Showing more depth, richness and structure, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley is a medium to full-bodied, concentrated 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that comes from a number of vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley. Black cherry, black currant, tobacco, earth, asphalt and crushed stone-like aromas all emerge from the glass, and on the palate, it has a dense, chewy mouthfeel and ample tannin. In need of 2-3 years of bottle age, it will drink nicely for upwards of 10-15 years. Drink 2015-2025."
91 Points

"Dense, richly textured and focused, layering the ripe cherry and spice flavors into a polished package that extends pleasantly onto the smooth finish."
90 Points

"Classic Walla Walla scents of cedar frond and Mexican chocolate give way to an inky, concentrated set of fruit flavors—black plum bordering on cassis. The toasted espresso feel to the tannins suggests a pairing with pepper-crusted lamb."

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,...
