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

Paraboll is bright ruby color with alluring aromas of black raspberry, cola, potpourri, star anise and minerals. Silky, pliant and sweet, with concentrated, expressive flavors of red and dark berries, floral pastilles and mocha. Offers palate-staining depth with no excess weight thanks to tangy acidity and pronounced spiciness. Tannins come on late, adding shape to the sappy, long finish. This should age well but it drinks nicely now.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-deep ruby color; deep, lush cherry aromas with some vanilla and spice; rich, ripe, lush cherry flavors with lots of spice and herbal notes, silky texture, sweet oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Lush and deep Pinot with layers of flavor."
94 Points

"A rich, supple, full-bodied Pinot, showing layers of fleshy plum, black cherry and berry, with hints of spice and sage. Full-bodied and sharply focused, with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2013."
93 Points

"Long on concentrated, well-ripened fruit and fit with a good bit of rich oak, this weighty Pinot Noir is nicely balanced and surprisingly vital for the big wine that it is. It shows the substance and depth to make us believers in its future, and it is destined for very good things as its opens and expands when allowed some three to five years of bottle aging."

Learn About Londer Vineyards

Londer Vineyards is located approximately 120 miles north of San Francisco, in the southwestern corner of California's Mendocino County. The blanket of fog that ordinarily curls up from the coast most summer nights and then burns off during the warm dry sunny days allow the vineyards to produce grapes that slowly develop and ripen. Londer Vineyards is one of the coolest of the state's so-called cool-climate wine regions. This is ideal for growing varietals such as Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay.
