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

Tasted after a year in bottle, Eileen is showing beautifully with loads of ripe-red-raspberry fruit on the nose. It is layered and textured, offering very pleasant tongue-caressing tannins on the palate. Sweet spices and a creamy oak flavor echo on the elegant and persistent finish. This is a lissome wine that will gain complexity in your cellar over the short to medium term.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Pinot Noir Eileen Vineyard comes from an organically farmed parcel. More forward than the first two wines, it features enticing spice box and red fruit aromas, a silky texture, sweet fruit, and an excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. Enjoy it over the next 8 years. "

"Bright red. Smoky cherry and raspberry on the nose, with hints of anise and cinnamon in the background. Juicy dark fruit flavors are nicely framed by fine, dusty tannins. A sexy note of spicecake joins the bright red fruit on the sappy, focused, long finish. Give this a bit of air if you plan on opening one any time soon."
91 Points

"From a high-density block planted in 1997, this pretty wine leads with savory aromas of olive, anise and wood smoke, followed by a generous dollop of red cherry fruit on the palate. The texture is lean and spicy, the finish has precision and grace."
