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

Each of the four clones was picked and fermented separately. Clusters were carefully inspected and hand sorted prior to sulphur-free destemming, then cold soaked for seven days. Only natural yeasts were present in each small lot; we do not inoculate for alcoholic or malolactic fermentation. Although each lot showed distinct quality, we singled out clones 7 and 169 for the final blend. That these earlier ripening clones proved exceptional in a wetter year is not surprising. After 20 months barrel aging in 100% French oak, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

The red and black fruit flavors characteristic of this site once again predominate in the 2011 Panek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine beautifully exhibits the caramelized brown sugar and maple syrup elements that make it such a pleasure to drink young. A shade more structured than its predecessor, this vintage is equally agreeable to food pairing and cellaring.

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,...
