  • 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 2007 vintage was an excellent one for Pinot Noir. Responding to a cold, dry winter and scant spring rains (rainfall in northern California was 40%–50% lower than average in 2007), vine vigor was minimized from the outset and the vines didn't produce too much foliage. Spring temperatures were warm, and the growing season started out fast with early bloom and fruit set. Then the weather cooled and mild temperatures prevailed throughout summer and into August. Enjoying ideal conditions of sunny days and foggy evenings, the grapes ripened slowly and evenly.

Sophisticated, serious and classic. Opens with fresh aromas of dark fruit—black cherry, blackberry and black plum—underscored by notes of earth and minerality. Similar flavors blossom in the mouth, backed by richly textured, firm tannins. A powerful wine with weight, presence and elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm and intense, this is marked by mineral, gravel, blueberry and blackberry fruit that's taut, concentrated and full-bodied, framed by chewy tannins. Drink now through 2013."
