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

We are proud to offer the inaugural release of our Estate grown Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Mountain AVA). The 2004 is packed full of ripe blackberry, plum and black cherry fruit with complex notes of truffle, pipe tobacco, black walnut and minerals. It has wonderful purity of fruit show-casing the vineyard's terroir. It will drink beautifully for the next 20 years.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon "Galitzine Vineyard" comes from the fourth leaf of this estate vineyard and is the first release of the wine, made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it has a superb bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, truffle, walnuts, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur which leaps from the glass. On the palate it is sweet and rich with layers of spicy black fruit flavors, terrific balance, and a 45+ second finish. It does not have quite the weight and depth of the flagship Cabernet but keep in mind that this is the product of a young vineyard only beginning to express its enormous potential. "

"This is a spectacular effort. Cascading flavors of black cherry, plum and cassis are drenched in caramel, mocha and buttery barrel flavors. Although the wine lists at a hefty 14.9% alcohol, it does not sacrifice elegance, nor does it substitute power for polish. The rush of blueberry, blackberry, black cherry and currant fruit, the layers of smoke and graphite, and the immense barrel flavors just keep on rolling through the palate. It will probably age quite well, but why wait?"
95 Points

"Bright, deep ruby-red. Aromas of black fruits and licorice. Sweet, dense and fat with fruit, but with plenty of energy and the structure and focus characteristic of Red Mountain cabernet. Not as lush or silky as the flagship cabernet but offers a lovely combination of sweetness and grip, and excellent balance. In a densely packed, more masculine black fruit style, particularly in the context of this vintage here. Finishes suave and long, with lovely sweetness to its tannins. A remarkable performance for young vines. This new wine is labelled with the original spelling of the family name."

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,...
