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%.
An intense, dark color. There are raspberry-like aromas and a complexity associated with this noble grape. Fresh, well-balanced, with gobs of dark fruit, great acidity, and mature tannins. This is an unctuous and elegant wine. In the mouth it is profound, round, fleshy, and with soft but potent tannins.
"The 2010 Paso de Piedra Cabernet Sauvignon spent 6 months in French oak. It displays an inviting nose of cedar, spice box, violets, black currant, and blackberry setting the stage for a nicely proportioned, sweetly-fruited, layered Cabernet that also provides outstanding value."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright red-ruby. Musky aromas of redcurrant, chocolate, herbs and smoky oak. Smooth, sweet and fine-grained, with a distinctly tactile quality to the currant and spice flavors. Finishes with an impression of solid extract and sneaky length, the big, dusty tannins reaching the front teeth. An excellent value."
International Wine Cellar
Smooth & Supple
For the price, a nice cabernet. Medium bodied with a pleasant nose, dark fruit, and a bit more finish than one would expect from a wine at this price. A pleasant and smooth drinking wine.

Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
