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

This wine makes you feel the elegancy directly on the nose with the pepper, ripefruit and tobacco notes that blends together to make this wine one of a kind. The roundness of the body plays with the concentration of this wine achieving balance and structure. Full-bodied wine with ripe and silky tannins and a deep and intense dark red color. It's Velvety in the mid palate, with nuances of perfectly integrated French oak featuring a very long and flavorful finish. A wine to be aged for at least 15 years or to be enjoyed now.

Ideal pairing with lamb, roasted game, duck, steak, and strong cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"This is as soft and luscious as velvet, and it offers smooth, rich tannins that frame the oak-tinged blackberry, black currant, anise and dark chocolate flavors. Its richness comes with high alcohol, which gives it a slight warmth on the finish."
94 Points

"Supple and juicy, with high-toned blackberry at the core, offering charming spice and floral scents, ending with depth, traction and length."
92 Points

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,...
