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 2006 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows all of the characteristics of a fine Rutherford Grown Cabernet Sauvignon. The complex nose is filled with dark chocolate and hints of berry. On the palate, this wine has delightful berry characteristics layered with dusty overtones. The finish is full and lingering in your mouth with balanced acid and tannins. This elegant 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is enjoyable now and will continue to develop complexity as it ages for the next ten to twelve years.

Critical Acclaim

"A good, rich, supple Cabernet, nicely dry and silky, with a pleasant, medium-bodied structure. It shows layers of blackberries, cherries, cranberries and cedarwood, wrapped into dusty tannins. Very enjoyable for drinking soon."
