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 nose on this Pinot Noir is complex yet pleasing with aromas of berry fruit, brown spice and earth. Flavors of strawberry-rhubarb, cardamom, cinnamon, pine duff and peat meld together to complete this rich and enjoyable wine. With a medium body, this wine is very smooth and wide on the palate. The tannins are full and the finish is long with juicy red fruits.

Critical Acclaim

"An interesting Pinot Noir, showing a bit of heat, but whose flavors are taut and complex. The usual cherries and cola you find in almost all California Pinot Noirs are grounded with meaty notes, like grilled hamburger, finished with a splash of tamari. Such are the tannins and acids that the wine should age gracefully for a good eight years, but you can drink it now.

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