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

The 1989 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a ruby-red color with brown edges and a nose of fresh blackberries, rose petals and cinnamon. The wine has a vibrant attack, a fruit-filled mid-palate and a long finish with a light tannic grip.

Critical Acclaim

"1989, the current vintage in release, is successful for Silver Oak. The 1989 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon offers beautifully pure aromas of blackcurrants, smoky, toasty, new oak, and licorice. Opulent and full-bodied, with excellent concentration of fruit, this rich, impressively-endowed Cabernet should drink well for at least a decade."
