Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume.

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 1984 Napa Valley Bonny's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a ruby-red color with brown edges. It has a nose of black plum, coffee and roasted red peppers. This wine has a light to medium body with a tart medium length finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Tasted twice in the last eight months, this wine was one of the superstars at one of the tastings, and the most controversial wine at the other. In the most recent tasting the wine revealed an intense, olive, herbal, minty component accompanied by exotic, over-ripe, jammy, cassis, and black-cherry fruit. It is lavishly oaked, full-bodied, and concentrated, but the intense herbaceousness often possessed by the Bonny's Vineyard cuvee puts some tasters off. Although this is a controversial wine, it remains youthful, exuberant, and distinctive."

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,...
