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

Fresh and engaging, yet impressively complex, this is a truly sophisticated Pinot Noir Rose that will be superb with a wide range of foods. Its aromas are initially shy, but with a bit of airing they come forth in an intriguing mix of wild strawberry, Maraschino cherry, watermelon, nectarine, yellow rose, pink peppercorn and roasted grain scents. On the mid-palate the wine offers the same lovely fruit, yet is firmly dry, cutting in zest, sleek in texture and enlivened by pretty citric highlights. The finish has vivid focus and is extremely long, carrying sweet-natured flavors of nectarine, strawberry, watermelon and roasted grain, tied to citric-mineral notes that cut through it all like a knife. It will be as tasty with raw oysters as with Cioppino or Chicken Paprikash.

Production: 88 cases

Critical Acclaim

"Pale orange-pink. Seductive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes pink grapefruit, pear, white flowers and herbs. Smells a lot like a white wine and tastes like one as well, offering tangy citrus and orchard fruit flavors that gain depth with aeration. This complex wine has the depth to handle richer foods but the vivacity to work by itself too."
