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

As the deep color indicates this wine has beautiful, rich and brooding aromas of leather, plums, coffee and sweet oak. The palate follows with a lovely rich, smooth texture full of ripe red fruits and spicy oak. Although still very youthful it is beautifully balanced and will develop even further in the bottle. A very impressive Martinborough Pinot noir.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Pinot Noir is conservative on the nose with notes of sous-bois and a touch of cigar box. Firm tannins, backward, nice weight on the middle, building towards some lovely pure dark fruits on the sappy finish. This Pinot improves the longer it stays in the mouth so give a year in bottle. Excellent."

Style: Smooth & Supple
Not the Pinot I'm accustomed to. A slight unidentifiable off-taste, but paired fairly well with baked fish.
