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

This wine is a hedonist's dream, viscous and silky smooth. Surprisingly savory aromatics of leather and black tea quickly give way to sweeter sensations of fresh baked spice cake and cola. The 2009 is a cornucopia of mixed berries with notes of sweet black cherry and cassis. Luscious fruit, broad tannins, beautifully integrated oak and sensational acidity coalesce to create this balanced and enjoyable wine. Oregon Pinot noir is rarely enjoyed so young, so take this opportunity to enjoy it now or cellar 4-7 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. High-pitched aromas of strawberry and raspberry, with complicating notes of dried rose and Asian spices. Lively and precise on the palate, with gently sweet red fruit flavors and a touch of rose pastille. The floral and spice notes repeat on the gripping, persistent finish."
90 Points

"Leading with scents of consomme and dried chocolate, the flavors of this savory red are marked by a fine mineral tang. It needs time to settle before serving with roast salmon.
Best Buy"
90 Points
