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

This is a special bottling, with a complex nose of tapioca pudding and dried apricots — it goes on and on, unveiling layers of aromas, some floral notes and a touch of toasty oak. The palate echoes these sensations, plus notes of cinnamon and spice. A classic Dobles Lías, round and creamy, very pleasurable right now but with a long life ahead.

Critical Acclaim

"This bottling, an extended lees Chardonnay, has been an innovation by the winery. The experiment is augmented by holding the release date back longer than usual. The 2006 vintage was not a great success, but this is an interesting, complex wine that should further develop in the bottle. Marked by the creamy, slightly sour taste of the lees, it has richness added by ripe apple and pineapple fruit and sweet, smoky oak. "
92 Points

"Shows off a ripe mix of snappy, peachy tangerine and nectarine flavors that are clean and snappy. Still very young and tight, but deep, focused and concentrated. Should only get better. Best from 2010 through 2015. 355 cases made."
