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 depth and richness of older Cabernets vary from year to year, but they are often astonishingly intricate yet together wines when fully developed. The 1989 Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon is just entering those prime years. It will remain in good form for several more years but there is no need to wait. The blend of 3% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc gives it a balance and dimension that enhance the already great appeal of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape.

Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"A big, rustic wine, the 1989 Cabernet Sauvignon (bottle #2) hits the palate with masses of dark stone fruits, smoke and spice. The 1989 is intense, carnal and direct, but it doesn't have the complexity or nuance of the better years. In this tasting, it suffers a bit in comparison with some of the more well rounded vintages, but it is compelling if taken on its own."

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,...
