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 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is soft and complex. It reflects its cool climate source with flavors of green apple, orange zest, and apple pie, which are complemented by buttery and toasty notes. With nutty and rich flavors, the wine finishes with a silky, full mouthfeel.

Critical Acclaim

"Perfumed floral, melon, fig and honeysuckle flavors are pure and elegant in this full-bodied white, which ends with a strong, persistent fruity aftertaste."
88 Points

"Good price for an elegant Chardonnay with such richness. The pineapple, lime and smoky oak flavors have a caramelized sweetness, but acidity is brisk, and there’s a fine minerality that makes the wine finish dry."
88 Points
