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 color is an intense ruby. On the nose is dark chocolate and bright red fruit aromas, with hints of tobacco. The mid palate has a rich texture, very well balanced. Notes of dark cherry and liquorish flavors on the mouth, with velvety tannins and a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Supple and generous, with rich, full-bodied plum, blackberry, currant and black licorice notes that are rough-hewn but well-structured, ending with a pleasing, chunky fruitiness. "

ok, to my taste, this is a deep, mellow cabernet. good tannins yet still strong fruit. ripe but not overripe, if that makes sense. i'd classify it along with the more expensive 'big cabs' from oakville. i've only had the 07 vintage, so i cannot attest to whether the same characters extend into later years. but i'd recommend this vintage while it lasts.

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.
