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 moderately cool weather of 2008 contributed to the excellent texture and depth of this vintage. The resulting wine exhibits dense layers of silky tannins and dark fruit that will evolve beautifully. The structure of this wine promises to age elegantly with an abundance of fine grained tannins exhibiting our signature cashmere mouth feel. This is a wine that will promise to cellar extraordinarily well but at the same time if you can not wait and drink one now, you will not be disappointed.

Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 2% Malbec

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,...
