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

Roth Estate is committed to making wines with the truest and best expression of the diverse and idyllic growing conditions in Sonoma County. The 2009 Roth Estate Pinot Noir, grown on the Sonoma Coast, has pure, ripe varietal flavors of red and Bing cherries that are well-focused, elegant and persistent. It was aged in French-oak barrels for 18 months. It is a beautiful display of cool-climate Pinot Noir, with excellent depth, and complexity of flavors accented with hints of sweet oak.

Critical Acclaim

"Jesse Katz focuses on Russian River Valley vineyards with gravelly, well-drained soils for this wine. It has a spicy, conifer forest edge to contrast ripe, high-toned raspberry flavors. The finish is juicy, pungent and clean, with the fruit sweetness to match roast duck."

Not really my style. Too strong and earthy (and I like the spicy wines, so this was a shock). Would encourage others to try though.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
