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

Garnet in color, with notes of tart cherry pie, complexed by earthy, forest floor on the nose. Soft silky tannins are complemented by flavors of cherries, raspberries and cherry gumdrops. This is a vintage that Pinot purists will love, exhibiting all the grace, earth and fruit that Pinot Noir shows when grown in the right place and handled with care by the right winemaking team.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium ruby color; dusty cherry, earthy aromas; rich, ripe earthy cherry flavors with nice oak and spice notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Full, rich Pinot with nice earthy notes."
