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 black currant and cherry aromas are enhanced with sage and tobacco leaf notes. Complex and concentrated black cherry and cassis flavors are integrated with rich oak and dark chocolate on the finish. Supple tannins and balanced acidity provide excellent structure to this elegant and complex blend.

59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Style: Earthy & Spicy
This wine/vineyard was a favorite of mine several years (and several assignments!) ago and I was thrilled to see an '06 vintage offered on wine.com. We considered this to be one of our daily wines, served at family dinner, shared by two wine enthusiasts who are totally not experts! It's a dark wine, with deep flavors, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't really like red wine. Will be buying it again!

Learn About Sonoma County

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
