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

Savory and enticing with notes of blackberry, raspberry, green tea and vanilla. On the Palate, there is a soothing amount of rich berries and dense cherry with notes of cola. Soft tones of semisweet chocolate and sage excite the senses. All of which leads to a balanced, pleasing and silky finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This collection of new Pinot Noirs raises the bar for the variety. It rates with the best showing from the best Pinot makers in California, and this outstanding wine comes out at the head of an altogether remarkable class. It is at once deep and profoundly fruity with a lavish display of optimally ripe cherries and perfectly fit oak, and, although high in extract and muscle, it is uncannily well-balanced and never less than brilliantly controlled. For all of its show-stopping richness, it is still far from its best, and only the sure promise of better with time keeps us from savoring it now."

"Dense aromas of tar, gravel and fresh earth join chunky, chewy dark berry flavors. Deeply concentrated.—Kosta Browne non-blind vertical (March 2011). Drink now through 2019. 727 cases made."
94 Points

"Glass-staining ruby. Powerful nose combines cassis, boysenberry, rose and smoky minerals. The deepest and most brooding of this set of releases, with palate-coating dark berry liqueur flavors and good back-end cling. Finishes with a strong echo of cassis. Fans of powerhouse pinots will go for this, and it does make an impression, but I prefer the vivacity of the other single-vineyard bottlings."
