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 2010 Heritance Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley is an assemblage of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. This is a classic wine with a beautiful, spun-gold hue, highlighted with tinges of lime green. The nose features a refreshing fruity combination of fresh berry with a touch of tropical and fig fragrances. This is a well-centered wine, that is round across the palate, fleshy and attractive, yet elegant with a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Made without oak, this is a beautiful, stylish and elegant young wine to drink now. Blended with some Sémillon for buttery fat, it highlights lime, green grass, white peach and white pepper fl avors, brightened with brisk acidity. Achieves an unusual level of control and complexity, especially at this price. Editors’ Choice "
91 Points

"Bernard Portet blendds of semillon into this sauvignon, the combination luscious and rich without feeling heavy. There's a cool spring water freshness to the finish, clearning up after the heady passionfruit flavors."
