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 2006 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir initially delivers deep flavors of cola, dark cherry and sweet spices. Traces of vanilla bean crème brûlée pleasantly greet the midpalate and touches of wet stone and sassafras add to the enjoyable texture and exhilarating finish.

This 2006 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of eight vineyards, which all lie in and around the central part of the Russian River Valley appellation. This area gives the wine a spicy red fruit core with a rich, supple character. The individual lots are all unique, giving the blend a load of complexity. We recommend drinking this wine between 2009 and 2014.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep, bright red. Sexy strawberry and raspberry scents, with suggestions of fresh flowers, smoky minerals and gingerbread. Silky in texture and seductively sweet, with spicy red fruit preserve flavors that gain energy with air. Finishes clean and brisk, with the attractive red fruit flavors lingering impressively."
