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

Aromas of coffee, raspberry creme, and dark chocolate arise from the glass. Second aromas of fresh tilled soil and black cherries add to the complex nose. On the palate, the rich mouth-feel is layered with flavors, raspberries, and dark chocolate. Toasty oak and a touch of vanilla enhance the well integrated tannins and impressive length. This is a balanced wine with power and grace.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Padrone (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) boasts a blockbuster nose of blackberries, blueberries, camphor and acacia flowers. Sweet tannins and a wonderful sucrosity and ripeness on the palate conceal some serious structure. This pure, long, full, rich wine possesses lots of black fruits as well as an impressive finish that lasts nearly 45 seconds. "
95 Points

"This year’s Padrone is comprised of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon as is testified by its sheer sturdiness. Very much adhering to the Signorello preference for wines of extract and substance, it is long on stuffing and depth, and its very ample serving of ripe, blackcurrant fruit is seasoned with plenty of rich oak. It is a big wine with big tannins and will not be ready any time soon, and it belongs in the cellars of those who have the patience to wait for the ten-plus years that it demands."
92 Points

"The 2010 Padrone (Cabernet Sauvignon) comes across as super-ripe and almost jammy, at least judging by this barrel sample. It is a big, voluptuous wine with tons of inner perfume and expressive dark red raspberry jam, smoke, licorice and tar. There is plenty of energy in the glass, but I don't find the 2010 Padrone meaningfully more complex or interesting than the Estate in this vintage. This is a bit on the heavy side today.

Range: 90-92 Points"

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. 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.
