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.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2009 HALL Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc balances expressively ripe fruit with bright, buoyant acidity. The backbone of this lusty blend hails from a vineyard partner in the cool region of Yountville and delivers ripe vibrant citrus flavors. Grapes from our Napa River Ranch contribute poetic minerality while Hardester vineyard fruit imparts lush tropical aromatics and opulent texture.

Fermented mostly in stainless steel tanks and refrained from malolactic fermentation, our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc possesses an assured fruitforwardness, freshness, and focus. We harvested our grapes at the height of ripeness and stirred the yeast lees after fermentation. The result is a rich wine with layered texture. Aromas of pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon blossom are complemented by a lush cascade of guava and lychee on the palate carrying through to a crisp, ringing finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A very fine 100% Sauvignon Blanc, made with little or no oak influence. It's dry and crisp and attractive, with citrus and tropical fruit, honeysuckle and vanilla flavors, and a fine tug of minerals. Combines richness and power with elegance, a rare feat."
91 Points

"A flintiness emerges with air as this wine's initial sulfur and reduction dissipate. Decant it to bring out the gooseberry and blood orange flavors, a firm and intriguing fruit character to match with grilled langoustines."

I don't think I've tried a better Sauvignon Blanc for the money this year. I picked up two bottles and opened one this weekend. Light grapefruit, guava and lemon flavors and aromas are well-integrated with pitch-perfect acidity.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
