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

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is always at the heart of Korbel Natural. Eleven unique Pinot Noir vineyards were used in the final 2007 blend. Pinot Noir gives our Natural a delicately rounded fruit profile of tart cherries and raspberries. The Chardonnay portion of the 2007 Natural blend came from seven different vineyards, many of which are in the coolest portions of the Russian River Valley and contribute to the firm, crisp green-apple backbone.

Critical Acclaim

"A good quaff, with creamy apple and tropical fruit aromas that lead to lush flavors of spicy cinnamon roll and baked pear. Drink now. 35,000 cases made. "
