This low alcohol movement needs to be stopped.
Why? The wines from Bordeaux are usually lower in alcohol content than Napa wines. I have found that in most cases, I like the lower alcohol content wines better than the high alcohol content wines, regardless if they are imported or domestic.

True, but I have found it easier to find lower alcohol wines from Sonoma than from Napa.
When I see some of these wines approaching 15+% alcohol, I am at the point of why not just go up an extra 4% or 5% and get a Port!
