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 2010 Hayne Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful expression of the St. Helena AVA. Dark cherry and wild berry marry beautifully with the sweet, spicy flavors derived from the French oak. The dark, jammy fruit is rich and coating and builds on the palate, while the integrated tannins add to the lengthy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard comes from a site that is better known for its Petite Sirah and Zinfandel made famous by Turley Cellars. This has always been a site that produces ripe wines, and you see that with this 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Offering blackberry and jammy fruit flavors, it is a full-bodied, in-your-face, yet elegant and pure Cabernet that delivers lots of blue and black fruits in an All-American / All-Napa, first team sort of way. This beauty should drink well for two decades or more."
94 Points

"This 100% Cabernet, from the western part of St. Helena, joins the winery's prestigious vineyard portfolio. The wine is rich and opulent in blackberries, cherries, chocolate and currants, with quite a bit of new French oak and thick, yet refined tannins. The mouthfeel is soft but the alcohol adds weight. Give it time to refine. Drink 2016–2020.
Cellar Selection"
92 Points

"Offers graceful, supple black cherry and raspberry fruit, displaying spice, crushed rock, sage and black tea notes. Very distinctive and complete, with earth laced tannins. "

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,...
