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 consensus here at the winery is this - our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is the best Sauvignon Blanc we have ever made! Always unique to the Napa Valley landscape, we pride ourselves in crafting Sauvignon Blanc that exhibits not only bright fruit and acidity, but refined minerality as well.

It starts in the vineyards; we specifically planted both our proprietary Soliloquy and Sauvignon Musque clones to give us those elusive flavors of melon and white peach. Following fermentation the wine is sur lees aged for eight months in three different vessels: concrete, stainless steel, and stainless barrels. After nearly two decades of experimentation, we have found this combination enhances the bright acidity, bouquet, and minerality unique to this vineyard site. The sur lees aging ties each of these components together, creating a long, silky finish on the palate. The result is a "Soliloquy" in perfect harmony!

Critical Acclaim

"One of the better Sauvignon Blancs out there for it's richness and concentration. With citrus, tropical fruit, lemongrass, vanilla and honeysucklle flavors, the wine shows a fine structure, with brilliant acidity and a clean finish. Editor's Choice."
