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

Fragrant aromas of white flowers, clementine and allspice burst from the glass followed by luscious flavors of Asian pear, lime, guava and passion fruit spiced with coriander. The round, plush palate is accentuated with delicately woven mineral notes and crisp acidity leading into to a long, vibrant finish. Wonderfully bright and fresh in its youth, this classic, dry Gewürztraminer will continue to develop complexity up to fifteen years from vintage.

Style: Fruity & Smooth
Floral aromas without a strong lychee character. Rich pear and tropical fruit flavors. Surprisingly rich flavors for a completely dry Gewurztraminer. Well balanced.

Learn About Sonoma County

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...

Learn About Gewurztraminer

Gewurztraminer (Guh-WERTZ-trah-meen-ehr) Spice is Nice If you've ever smelled a lychee, you'll probably recognize a wine made from Gewurztraminer.
