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

Blackberry, anise and mineral aromas with suggestions of mulberry and briary spice against a toasted oak background; big on the palate, rich and broad with velvety fruit, supple tannin and a clean finish. Not simply a "fruit bomb" like many California Zins, this wine shows the firmness and freshness which are hallmarks of high-elevation fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Dense, layered and complex, offering blackberry, licorice, earth and loam aromas. Give the flavors time to unwind and you'll find sleekly defined currant, sage and smoky pepper, finishing with ripe but firm tannins. Best from 2010 through 2014. 1,329 cases made."

bought it a year ago and thought it was too overwhelming for some subtle notes. However, I just opened a bottle 2 weeks ago and BANG, it seems to have settled; what a pleasant surprise!

Mediocre table wine. Decanting does not help. Rating should be 87-88.
