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

Soft yellow color upon release, developing a golden hue as it ages. Bright, vibrant tropical fruit aromas flow from the glass. Underlying grapefruit and lime add depth and character to the aroma. Seamless, textured layers of cantaloupe, pineapple and vanilla flood the palate. A mouthwatering finish entices another sip. This wine will develop flavors of fig and apricot, giving richness, as it ages in the bottle.

Our favorite Joy of Cooking® pairing for this wine includes pan seared scallops, broiled salmon with asparagus, and crème brulee.

Critical Acclaim

"A seductive style, ultrarich, creamy, layered with jazzy oak and a core of ripe pear, peach and nectarine flavors, all focused and persistent through the long, lingering finish."
