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

An excellent vintage from Ribbon Ridge, our 2000 has a deep saturated ruby/purple color. Ripe black cherry, cola, and blackberry fruit dominate the bouquet. In the background a hint of spicy oak can be discerned. Still youthful, this medium to full-bodied wine has a layered palate, moderate tannin and a sweet, long finish. It is always difficult to compare one vintage to another, but 2000 may represent a hypothetical blend of 1998 and 1999. It is not as powerful, muscular or tannic as the 1998 nor as forward, charming and accessible as the 1999. It is a big wine and certainly ranks with our finest vintages to date: 1993, 1994, 1998, and 1999.

Critical Acclaim

"Richer and fleshier than most '00s, beautifully balanced to focus its currant, blueberry and blackberry flavors on superfine tannins, finishing generous, round and spicy, with a delicate hint of oak."
92 Points

"Gorgeous aromas of bacon and cherry mix with toast before a palate that’s full of black cherry, plum and vanilla cream. The texture is marvelous, as is its pulse; this is a racy wine filled with rich fruit and firm acids.
Cellar Selection"
92 Points

"Good red-ruby color. Expressive aromas of raspberry, strawberry, coffee and sexy oak spices. Concentrated and lush, with spicy red fruit flavors framed but not overwhelmed by high-quality oak. Large-scaled and a bit youthfully aggressive, but shows very good balance and nicely integrated oak. Finishes bright and sappy, with fine tannins and enticing red berry flavors. The strongest early showing for this estate flagship wine since the 1993."
