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

The OFS (Our Finest Selection) Pinot Noir typifies a quintessential Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. Generous aromas of blackberry and raspberry lift out of the glass. The aromas unfold to fresh berries mingling with rose petals towards the front of the palate, followed by undertones of cola, leather, and black tea in the mid to back palate. This seductively layered wine is perfectly balanced with its fine acids and medium bodied soft tannins, resulting in a wine that is approachable upon release as well as a wine that will continue to develop beautiful nuances with age. Enjoy with roasted port tenderloin with fingerling potatoes or grilled rack of lamb with honey mustard glaze.

Critical Acclaim

"This top selection from DeLoach has enough fresh, lively fruit to balance the smokiness of the vintage, turning it toward minerality. The finish is taut and tannic for now, with enough fruit to lend it charm. Decant for a seared ribeye."
