Shelton Cabernet Sauvignon 1998
Cabernet Sauvignon from North Carolina, Other US
Big, bold, aggressive and robust, Cabernet Sauvignon owes its persistent popularity to its strength of flavor and full-bodied texture. Cabernet Sauvignon is a relatively small-sized grape with one of the highest ratios of skin to juice, producing a wine - when executed correctly - with intense blackcurrant aromas and flavors. A truly first class Cabernet depends on the skills employed by an experienced and exceptional vintner. Shelton Cabernet Sauvignon was produced in the Napa Valley, a region known and respected for distinctive Cabernets, and is rich in flavor without the excessive acidity and tannin that can mask its characteristic flavors.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost 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%.
