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

On the nose, Liparita Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon shows notes of red cherry, pomegranate, licorice, and berry. The taste is Oakville Cabernet at its best with allspice and black pepper with a long and lush finish of vanilla and fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautiful Cabernet, showing classic Oakville ripeness in its flavors of black and red berry, currant and spice. There’s also a fine, tangy note of green olive that brings an earthiness to the fruit. The structure is seamless, the tannins smooth and flashy."

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