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

Focused and intense raspberry and dark berry fruit accented by lavender and lilacs. Pleasing hints of flint and stone help accentuate the abundance of briary fruit. On the palate, a generous amount of blackberry, boysenberry and blue fruit. The intense berry flavor is coaxed through and around the palate with gripping acidity, minerals and cinnamon. The fi nish is lengthy and mouthwatering leaving you wanting more.

Critical Acclaim

"This very tight Pinot is dense, concentrated and focused on pure, ripe, layered plum and raspberry fruit. Impressive showing.—Kosta Browne non-blind vertical (March 2011). Drink now through 2019. 803 cases made."
95 Points

"Ruby-red. Energetic aromas of black raspberry, blood orange, candied rose and minerals. Vivid, impressively focused red and dark berry flavors are complicated by an exotic floral pastille quality. The silky tannins add support and gentle grip to the long, subtly sweet finish. 93 points "
93 Points

"First, let us say that this is a very good Pinot Noir by any standard, and it shows fine concentration if a little less succulence that the very best of its clan. Long on sweet oak and fully ripe, it tightens up and gives ground as it goes to back-end acidity, and its fruit retreats just a bit at the finish. It too is a wine that is sure to be helped by a few years of aging, but it never reaches quite as far or promises as much in time as its more deeply filled mates."
