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

Once our 2007 Reserve was assembled, the remaining parcels made up 'The Ranch'. In 2007, this left stellar blending components. The resulting wine is sumptuous, full-bodied and velvety. This wine is made to be opened early and often.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot) is sensational. Dense ruby/purple-hued with notes of cassis, licorice, chocolate, cedar, and coffee, it is a long, rich, flamboyant, exuberant effort whose minerality/burning ember component in the finish gives the wine considerable definition. This full-bodied offering is a classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon combined with a finesse and minerality that is unusual in California. It should drink well for 20-30 years."
95 Points

"Deep ruby. Dark berries, licorice, chocolate, minerals, smoke and violet pastille on the sexy nose. Dense and sweet, with an exotic spicy oak character to the creamy flavors of dark berries and mocha. A very broad, tactile and deep cabernet that finishes with rich, sweet tannins, noteworthy persistence, and a strong impression of soil."

Learn About Napa Valley

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. 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,...
