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

Dry Creek Valley, a subappellation of Sonoma County, is nestled between the Alexander Valley to the east and the Russian River Valley to the southwest. Throughout the summer growing season the area benefits from warm temperatures during the day and coastal cooling in the late afternoon, though fog seldom impacts the region during the day. Long warm days are ideal for bringing grapes to ripeness while cool nights preserve natural acidity. Zinfandel loves heat, which gives the grape its distinctive jammy note. Zinfandel thrives in Dry Creek Valley, where it is the most recognized red grape varietal grown. The 2007 vintage commenced after a warm summer. The heat held during the vintage and fully mature grapes were harvested that were bursting with varietal flavor, had fleshy textures and smooth finishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and zesty, featuring jammy plum and black raspberry fruit, with layered notes of toasty cinnamon, pepper and sage. Finishes with appealingly rustic tannins. Drink now through 2016. 825 cases made. "

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...
