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

#28 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

This luscious Sauvignon Blanc begins with a complex, mouthwatering aroma of golden delicious and honey crisp apples accented with crème brulée and sweet Meyer lemon. Sophisticated mineral notes appear as the wine opens. An underlayment of lychee fruit, ripe pineapple and white peach then follows. The rich palate is finely tuned, with an excellent, refreshing balance. If possible, allow some of this vintage to age in your cellar ? patience will bring ample reward.

Critical Acclaim

"Extremely complex, with layers of honeysuckle, apricot, peach, lemon curd, mineral and nectarine that are rich, fleshy, ripe and very generous, with a juicy acidity and plenty of aromatics. The finish just lingers on and on. Drink now through 2016. 8,005 cases made."
