Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

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

Inky black and ruby red in color, on the nose the 2008 Marlstone exhibits complex aromas of cassis, cedar and baking spice, followed by a palate of concentrated fruit with fine grain tannin, powerful and balanced, concluding with a long, rich finish.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot

I wish I had purchased ALOT more. This is a lovely blend with deep, rich fruit flavor and a smooth finish. We drank this before a meal but I think it would pair nicely with game meat or beef. Yummy!

At this year's Main Line Today Wine & Food Affair - the PALCB sampled this wine and sold it at $24.99. I've seen it retail as high as $49.00. It drinks like a $100 bottle. The blend is spot on - would even suggest buying extra and storing for two-three years to see what happens in the bottle. Intense color, full bodied from the jump and yet super silky smooth.

Learn About Sonoma County

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...
