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

Filled with floral, herbal, black raspberry, coffee and brown sugar aromas. If Six Was Nine is World's End take on a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon varietal wine. However, as they come from Bordeaux they find it difficult to live with just one variety! So they blend in a little Merlot to help the middle palate and Cabernet Franc to provide just that extra bit of lift.

Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon If Six Was Nine is another excellent effort made from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet perfume of licorice, cedar and black currants. Medium to full-bodied, rich and textured with graphite and charcoal making an appearance in the flavors, this full throttle, impressive Cabernet can be drunk now and over the next 15 years."

Style: Big & Bold
Pair with: Red meats, hearty stews and ragout, Fancy BBQ
Big and well made the wine is deep purple-red, full bodied with a nice medium-sized nose of dark fruit, a touch of wood and berries. This is in the California style with fruit predominating over acid. There is enough tannin to hold for a while but not too much to drink now. I don't think there's enough acid for transformative ageing or to carry the wine past about 2024. Still it is lush and mouth-filling. You can probably do nearly as well for less money but this wine is a pleasure to drink and a source of pride to serve to others.

Learn About World's End

Described by Robert Parker as a 'visionary, self-styled revolutionary' and the 'English winemaking guru,' Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the 'garage revolution' in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990's. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).

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...
