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

A full-flavored yet finely structured Cabernet of great appeal: black berries, dried leaves and fine gravelly tannin, reflect an outstanding year.

Critical Acclaim

"Good hue and depth; the bouquet and palate sing from the same page, bringing black fruits, dried sage, black olive and oak together, and then laying a carpet of fine tannins underneath"
92 Points

"2012 Robert Oatley Margaret River Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon (Best Buy) This gentle cabernet is long on elegance and herbal spice. It offers a rich texture without tannic overload, its foresty fruit ranging from red cherry to boysenberry. A coastal cabernet for venison or other lean meats."
91 Points

"Vivid ruby. Pungent scents of fresh cherry, blackcurrant and pipe tobacco, with a smoky nuance coming up with aeration. On the palate, gently sweet dark fruit flavors are sharpened by juicy acidity and a jolt of peppery spices. Tightly focused and energetic on the smoke-tinged finish, which features supple tannins and repeating spiciness."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
