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 2006 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon has 10% Merlot blended in to soften the tannins for palate feel and to add complexity. All grapes were harvested at their peak maturity. The wine was barrel aged in 50% new French oak from Treuil cooperage. The wine is deep garnet in color, varietally true to type in aroma, and well balanced on the palate. The result is an elegant wine of a pedigree that will please for years to come.

Critical Acclaim

"While this isn’t in the same league as the winery’s stunning Alexander reserve-style bottling of Cabernet, it's an approximation of it and, at about one-third the price, a pretty good value. The wine is rich in blackberry, currant and cedar flavors, and balanced with gorgeous tannins, showing true Napa elegance."

Style: Big & Bold
Opens up with an opulent nose of crushed blackberries, currants and ample oak tones. Med deep purple/garent color with some transpancy at the rim. Decent flavors but a very coarse texture that simply doesn't improve with time in the glass and finsihes unbalanced and little hot. Not my type of Napa cab! I'm beginning not to trust WE ratings. Maybe an 85 rating would be more in line with my senses.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

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,...
