Alcohol By Volume: 12.7%

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

Our 2009 Pinot Noir has a bright ruby color and displays aromas of cherry, rosemary, and vanilla. The nose leads to delicate violet flavors, accompanied by a structured mouthfeel that will ensure long aging.

This wine will harmoniously accompany your meat and game dishes such as salmon, lamb chops, roast duck and wild mushrooms.

Critical Acclaim

"Crisp and straightforward, offering a pleasant mouthful of currant and red plum fruit on an open-textured frame."
