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 Reserve Chardonnay opens with inviting aromas of lemon cream pie, Bartlett pear and nectarine. Unctuous notes of creamy lemon bar, mango and mandarin orange are layered with subtle hints of vanilla and clove. The wine is well-balanced and lively with a solid structure and creamy texture. The wine finishes with hints of vanilla and lemon oil.

Critical Acclaim

"The most expensive effort, a selection of the estate’s finest barrels, is the 2007 Chardonnay Reserve. This wine appears to be more monolithic, but it may just need another 6-12 months of bottle age. It is unquestionably an outstanding Chardonnay offering up notes of tropical fruits, spicy, smoky oak, earth, citrus oil, and poached pear. Medium to full-bodied as well as structured, it should drink well for 2-4 years. "

Style: Light & Crisp
Great Chardonnay! Pear, lime on the nose. Not too oaky, not too buttery, not too fruity - just right!! Nicely balanced, crisp & smooth. Tons of tropical fruit on the palate. Lingering finish with a mixture of minerals, vanilla, with just a hint of spice. Delicious...would definitely buy again!! Highly recommend.

wine was very good but it should be priced at around $12.99 . I put a bottle dow and will check it again in a couple of years.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. 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...
