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 both extremely rich and super supple, with fine-grained, mouthfilling tannins, balanced oak and an intriguing dusty quality. The aromas are alluring and sophisticated, offering layers of raspberry, cranberry, blueberry, sassafras, milk chocolate, cinnamon, clove and cassis. A classic expression of Hyde vineyard—powerful, elegant and intricate.

Critical Acclaim

"This firm, tight Pinot offers vivid blackberry, spice, mineral and cedar notes. Full-bodied and concentrated, with a supple, graceful finish."
91 Points

"Bright ruby. Complex nose melds black cherry, minerals and menthol. Juicy and tightly wound, conveying an impression of medicinal reserve to its mineral and rose petal flavors. Densely packed and sharply focused, but firm acidity is keeping the wine's fruit under wraps. This extremely young wine finishes with serious tannins and good drive. I’d hold it for four years. Winemaker Hall notes that this has the lowest pH among his 2009 pinots, at 3.5. While he describes the 2009 pinots as generally plush and big, this one stands out for its nervy character. today.”"
