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 wine we produce from this spectacular site located above the fog line atop the eastern slopes of Napa Valley possesses the purity and focus of mountain fruit and the muscularity of a warm climate cabernet. Deep garnet in color, it is aromatic with fresh red and black berries, dried herbs and a touch of red licorice. Firm, ripe tannins are prominent as precise, concentrated flavors of cassis, black plums and graphite coat the mouth. Balanced acidity and a touch of vanillin complement the fruit and tannins over a never-ending finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A very great Napa Cabernet by any standard. Defines the modern style of soft richness, with lavish flavors of blackberry tart, crème de cassis, blueberry, dark chocolate and the richest, sweetest toasty oak you can imagine. It's soft and ripe enough to drink now, yet shows a subtle structure that suggests aging for a decade. Possesses the extreme complexity and finesse that mark the greatest wines. "
97 Points

"Tightly wound, yet rich and generous, offering a mix of power and finesse, driven by a thick, mouthcoating core of blackberry, wild berry, black licorice, mineral, floral and spicy notes that are long and persistent. Best from 2012 through 2023."
93 Points

"Inky purple. Captivating, deeply pitched aromas of cherry-vanilla, cassis, licorice and tobacco. Dense, sweet and intense, with serious grip and underlying structure to the bitter cherry, dark berry and oak spice flavors; an intriguing floral element comes up as the wine sits in the glass. Full but surprisingly light on its feet. This dense, sappy wine really stains the mouth, finishing long and sweet, with youthfully gripping tannins and a lingering perfume of crystallized flowers. 93(+?) points. "
93 Points

"A wine that remains somewhat closed and austere is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard. Performing better than it did last year, it needs 5-6 years of bottle age, and should keep for 25-30 years. Its dense purple color is followed by notes of wet stones, smoked herbs, black currants, and ink. Deep, rich, backward, and ageworthy, it should be forgotten for a few years, and drunk over the following three decades.

92+ points."

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,...
