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

Bright and silky, our 2009 Pinot Noir Carneros shows off red Bing cherry and Burgundy plum aromas, with hints of red rose and sweet spice. Smooth, fine-grained tannins support the elegant, red-fruit flavors through the lingering, vanilla-nuanced finish. Vibrant acidity nicely balances this medium-bodied wine, making it an excellent pairing with salmon as well as with pork, poultry and red meats.

Critical Acclaim

"Wild berry flavors are direct and focused, with herbal shadings and firm, tight tannins. Features spicy notes on the finish, including a touch of cayenne. Drink now through 2017. 50,000 cases made."
