Terra Valentine Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Our fourth vintage of Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is full of bing cherry, blackberry and spicy cloves in the nose. On the palate, concentrated blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate meld with full rich tannins. This well balanced wine finishes with undertones of toasty caramel.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost 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%.
