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

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 Kelham Cabernet Sauvignon has many Bordeaux-like qualities because it captures both dark fruits and earth in a wine with exquisite texture. Berry and cassis are mixed with notes of cigar, bay and herb. More French oak barrels are used for this wine, offering spice, toast and char. This rich palate is equally balanced by beautiful Oakville tannins, offering a long, generous finish. This is a great wine to pair with food and will cellar for many years to come.

Critical Acclaim

"The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Kelham Vineyard offers more lavender and bouquet garni notes along with black currant fruit. Rich, with sweet tannins and a wild herb-like component, this medium to full-bodied Cabernet should drink well for 15-20 years."

Great big California cab with great peppery undertones. Pairs famously with slightly spicy foods. The extra "kick" makes it a fun single vineyard cab. Go for it.

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,...
