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

Deep ruby red color. The DeLoach 2010 California Merlot offers enticing aromas of black cherry and mulberry fruit with hints of cigar box. On the palate, luscious flavors of blueberry and black plum mingle with notes of raspberry, dusty chocolate and leather. A well-structured wine with smooth tannins, this Merlot is wonderful to enjoy right now.

Pair with grilled meats, penne pasta with feta and black olives, braised short ribs.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
