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 white, chalky soils of "Mont Damnés" could blind an innocent passerby on a sunny day—here pure Kimmeridgian terroir is what gives this wine its kick, its poise and its persistence. Without question one of the more chiseled and pure "Monts Damnes", with lots of middle-palate energy. White pepper, dried flowers, sea breezes and white peach juice on the nose; the mouth is both savory and saline, with stony persistence and a wave of Meyer lemons and more white peaches. We always love the hint of cherries on the palate, as it's a sign of a truly complex and noble white wine.
