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

Davis Bynum pinot noir is driven by vineyard sites. True to long-established form, it remains a very food friendly wine, with bright fruit aromas and flavors, a rich yet soft, silky texture and a very long finish. Our Russian River Valley pinot noir takes a series of exceptional vineyards and blends them together to create a classic wine that captures all the regional traits.

Critical Acclaim

"This buxom red has the full ripeness of candied black cherry flavor, balanced by savory tannins that keep the voerall impression dry, almost austere. Thos tannins have the scent and feel of fine leather along with a foresty note, like bay. The push-pull of umami and sweet fruit will match braised duck with black mushrooms."
