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

Brimming with the same intense Riesling character of the grapes at harvest, the wine is overflowing with aromas of mandarin orange, honeysuckle, lemon zest and melon. Each sip is light and refreshing with increasing weight and texture that is quickly balanced by the wine's focused, vibrant acidity and modest alcohol. With time, like eyes adjusting to a dark night sky, the wine's elusive mineral quality slowly reveals itself and the potential for added complexity over time.

Critical Acclaim

"With a couple of extra years already behind it, this Oregon Riesling is drinking well, but should be consumed now. It has the body of a Chardonnay, rich and round, with mixed stone fruits and a hint of bitter citrus rind. Quite dry and already mature. best Buy."

Like many other states, Oregon itself is an AVA of note. An Oregon wine can simply state Oregon as its place of origin, which typically means the grapes came from multiple smaller AVAs within the state. Beyond the main AVAs of Oregon, like Willamette Valley, Rogue and Umpqua, smaller regions are gaining ground. Some you may see on the label include: Columbia or Walla...
