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 Cabernet Sauvignon explodes with seductive aromas of prunes, dark chocolate, plums and cassis that are complimented by touches of cinnamon, cigar box and dried herbs. The aroma is rich and expressive and alludes to the depth and complexity of this wine. The wine is an impressive opaque purple-red color. Once tasted this Cabernet immediately presents tiers of dark chocolate, dark cherry and black berry fruit. The tannins are full and supple with tremendous weight and structure, yet remain graceful.

Critical Acclaim

"This is classic Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon—in an old-fashioned way. That's not a back-handed compliment, it's a testimony to the wine's dryness and herbaceousness, and the soft quality of its tannins. The blackberry, olive and cedar flavors are delicious, and the wine will develop bottle complexity over the next 10 years or so."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. 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...

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,...
