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 2008 Sauvignon Blanc is uniquely Dry Creek Valley. Distinctive for its wide spectrum of tropical fruit flavors, the wine also carries an excellent sense of acidity and balance. Flavors of peach, honeydew, and pear give this wine wonderful complexity and dimension. On the palate, floral elements burst forward creating a mouthwatering sensation. The finish is long and lingering providing a fresh, clean, and memorable drinking experience.

Critical Acclaim

"Just beautiful. Captures the essence of a fine Sauvignon Blanc, with bone dry, tart citrus, gooseberry and vanilla flavors that are pure and clean. Unoaked and lovely, this is a terrific restaurant by-the-glass wine. "
90 Points

"Pale gold hue. Fresh-cut grass aromas with wisps of lemon peel and grapefruit. Well balanced, delicate and refreshing, offering flavors of lemon zest, cucumber and mineral. Dry, crisp finish with a lingering, telltale gooseberry impression."

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
