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 2009 J "California" Pinot Gris has an enticing bouquet of tangerine and orange blossom. The crisp entry and velvety mouthfeel bursts into flavors of Margarita lime and Tahitian vanilla. There is a hint of honey on the palate that complements the fruit and acid nicely. The lingering finish invites you to relax and enjoy another taste. In fact, it is the perfect solo sipper after a hard day at the office, or while lounging under a tree on a summer afternoon. This layered and well-balanced wine is a great accompaniment to a variety of foods, from spicy Asian and Mexican cuisine to a good old-fashion turkey dinner or holiday ham. We suggest incorporating our Pinot Gris in the ham glazing.

Critical Acclaim

"With no oak or malolactic fermentation, this wine is all pure, savory fruit. Made from a combination of Clarksburg, in the Delta, and Monterey fruit, it combines warm climate ripeness with coastal acidity to produce a crisp wine with intricate lime and spice flavors."

Very good wine with peach and apple flavor. Not a big fan of Pinot Gris, but this was very good.
