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 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon displays lovely rich and elegant garnet color with aromas which are a blend of cassis, current and the deepest darkest cherry. Like a silk scarf can just slip from your shoulder unexpectedly, This middleweight wine delivers glide-from-your-shoulder silkiness. On the palate, the wine has flavors of cassis and bramble fruit with a hint of Mother Earth and sufficient cocoa to make it interesting.
