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

This could be the finest Vineyard 29 ever. The vineyard is situated north of St. Helena on the eastern-facing slope of Napa Valley, which subjects it to morning sunlight, and allows a slightly cooler afternoon exposure than much of the rest of the valley. Hence, the growing season is lengthened, and the vines are allowed to obtain maximum physiological ripeness. This results in a wine of complex layers and depth of flavor. The tannins of Vineyard 29 are soft and elegant, characteristic of the Grace Family clone used throughout the vineyard. This complements a rich black cherry and smoky leather nose, and lengthy, viscous mouth feel.

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous effort from proprietors Chuck and Anne McMinn, this grand cru vineyard situated north of St. Helena, in the sloping foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains has turned out a beautiful, complex, elegant, Chateau Margaux-like Cabernet Sauvignon. This youthful wine offers a dense ruby/purple color, notes of acacia flowers, blueberry and black currant fruit, full body and stunning finesse, charm, purity and equilibrium. The finish is long, fresh, lively and promising. "
96 Points

"Full ruby-red. Aromas of currant, plum, chocolate, black cherry, mint, mocha, licorice and herbs. Lush, rich and sweet, with a mouth-caressing texture but also noteworthy energy. Quite full and suave. The dusty, fine tannins arrive late, allowing the currant and lightly herbal flavors to open nicely on the back. Rather sophisticated cabernet, with plenty of structure for aging."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
