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

Flavors of rich, tropical fruit dominate this beautiful 2010 Chardonnay sourced from our Carneros Estate vineyards in southern Napa Valley. The nose offers essences of baked apple and pear with ripe, expressive flavors of peach and apricot. The mouthfeel is full and rich, accented by bright citrus and a hint of oak, with a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"With its green pear and pale nectarine flavors, this wine has purity of fruit to balance its light oak tannins. The finish is smoky, hinting at roast corn. For roast sea bass."
