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

In the eighth vintage of this appellation Cabernet blend, it is a combination of hillside and valley floor vineyard grapes. The style combines the harmony by traditional Bordelaise winemaking techniques with the volumptuousness gained from California's weather, especially in this perfect vintage.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 3% Petite Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot. It reveals deeper, richer cassis fruit than the 2011 or 2010, a sweet, velvety mouthfeel, and a medium to full-bodied texture. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

Range: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"Bright purple. Intense, smoke-accented aromas of cherry and blackcurrant, with Indian spice and floral notes adding complexity. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering energetic dark fruit flavors and a hint of chewing tobacco. Closes tangy and long, with slow-building tannins and very good focus."
93 Points

"Ramey's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon jumps from the glass with layers of flavor and pure intensity. Expressive floral and spice notes add lift, but there is no shortage of vintage 2012 raciness and intensity here. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support layers of creamy, highly expressive fruit. This is shaping up to be a very pretty wine from David Ramey.

Range: 90-92 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,...
