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

Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay has a rich, full mouthfeel enveloped in sweet, delicate aromatics of ripe melon and passion fruit. A subtle oak influence gives the wine flavors of toasted caramel and vanilla. This Chardonnay is well-balanced with a full, creamy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast possesses classic tropical fruit notes of mangos and pineapples as well as good freshness and a medium-bodied, fruit-driven style with the oak pushed well to the background. Drink it over the next 1-2 years. "

This is truly my favorite Chardonnay for the price. I really love buttery, creamy Chards and this fits the bill!!! I'm also a fan of their Pinot Noir!

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
