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

Deep ruby red in color. Intense on the nose with notes of black pepper and raspberries. Robust, full bodied with rich, jammy tannins. A perfect wine to pair with roasts, fatty meats, aged cheeses and savory pasta dishes. Serve at 60 - 64°F.
70% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Critical Acclaim

"Elegant, with lovely notes of spring blossom and verbena running through flavors of kumquat, white peach, stone and spice. Well-knit and creamy, with racy acidity leading to the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,500 cases made."

The wine dot com reference to a 90 point Parker score for this wine is mistaken. My one star review is not for the wine, but for wine dot com's incorrectly indicating that Parker scored this wine a 90. The 90 point Parker review wine dot com quotes is actually for Scarbolo's Sauvignon Blanc (which is a white wine), NOT for this wine, which is 70/30 blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It's obvious the Parker review is for a white wine: "spring blossom and verbena running through flavors of kumquat, white peach," etc. I have purchased this wine, and if wine dot com corrects the information it provides about this wine, I will give the wine an actual score.
