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.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2007 Carneros Napa Valley Chardonnay displays vibrant stone fruit—peach, nectarine and apricot—character from our vineyards in the southern, coolest region of Napa Valley. Soft vanilla oak tones add complexity to the fruity aromas, silky flavors and lingering finish.

This dry, crisply balanced wine makes the perfect prelude to a meal, especially with seafood appetizers or fruit and creamy cheeses. It's an elegant complement to entrées, especially tarragon-crusted halibut, roast chicken or pork, and creamy pasta dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows ripe, complex and well-defined nectarine, tangerine and spicy pear flavors, gaining depth and richness on the wonderfully long finish. Drink now through 2012. 15,000 cases made. –JL"

This is a very well made chardonnay. It has a fresh fruity forward start and ends in a buttery oaky aftertaste. Very well balanced and ready to enjoy. I'm just waiting for some hotter days to enjoy even more. I paired it with some Fire Cracking Shrimp and butter lemon garlic angel hair pasta. GREAT!!! I would definitely buy this chardonnay again.
