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

This dark blackish wine shows intense aromas of fresh black cherries, sweet cedar and coffee, with dark/milk chocolate and wet gravel notes. Background traces of vanilla, cigar box and cinnamon toast linger. Full, rich, and round, the palate flavors are fresh blackberries, sweet cherries, bittersweet chocolate and cinnamon.

This complex wine pairs well with delicately-prepared dishes like pepper crusted tenderloin with mushroom cream and roasted asparagus.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"An extraordinary wine, this is one of the best offerings from Sequoia Grove. Everything is pitch-perfect: Its fine, ripe fruit flavors of blackberry, blueberry and black currant are balanced with earthy, herbal tones; its tannins are soft and rich, with a sharp acidity and a tasteful overlay of oak. Delicious as it is now, you’ll want to cellar this wine for at least six years."
95 Points

"Exhibits a distinct loamy earth dustiness, with touches of sage, framing an elegant core of pure, supple dark berry and ending with a touch of charcoal. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2023."

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,...
