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

This classic and effusive bouquet boasts of nectarine, honeysuckle, jasmine and chalky notes; even a hint of orange blossom. Lively and bright on the palate, this 2011 Viognier is silky and velvety with mouthwatering flavors of mandarin, chiffon, lilikoi, almond and mango, sporting a bright, delicious, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Viognier (Central Coast) jumps from the glass with exotic white flowers, spices, gingerbread, lychee and mango. There is no shortage of varietal character in this bright, crystalline white. Clean, vibrant layers of minerality give the wine its inner tension and weightless, crystalline finish."
