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

The 2008 California Chardonnay was created with fruit from cool regions of California. The aromas and flavors of red apple, pear and tropical fruits have streaks of lemon creme with nice minerality and hints of vanilla. This is an approachable Chardonnay, yet richly textured, while retaining a balance of integrated fruit and sweet toasty oak.
