Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
There are incredible aromatics on this Cabernet. Dusted summer blackberries and creme de cassis. Delicate fine-tuned French oak strikes a perfect balance, never overshadowing the fruit. The tannins are silky, rich and smooth, detailing the amazing singularity of the terrior of Oakville. A wine of grace and beauty. Impeccable and delicious. Dramatic and just about perfect.
"Just a little different, and quite intriguing for it, this wine offers aromas of cherries, raspberry, vanilla and a hint of dried mint all buttressed by creamy, rich oak. It is medium-full to full in body, balanced and supple with early hints of polish and fine-grained tannins that provide structure without excess coarseness. There is a bit of depth not currently found in its flavors, but this is one where time in bottle could yield a wine that improves noticeably, and we would commend a wait of a half decade at least with the thought that even more is in store."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
