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

Lush aromas of apricot, pear, lemon zest and vanilla. A rich, creamy mouthfeel with bright acidity. Complex flavors of ripe pear, white peach, passionfruit, honey-dew melon and spicy vanilla.

The 2012 growing season started with a cold and dry winter. We had some good rain in the Spring and a relatively hot summer, which provided excellent ripening and intensely flavored fruit. A delicious and versatile wine that pairs well with a wide range of dishes; steamed or grilled fish, crab and prawns, grilled veal chops with mushrooms, late summer vegetables such as red peppers, corn, butternut squash and pumpkin. 100% Chardonnay lightly oaked and bright acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"A terrific floral and tropical fruit-scented and flavored white, this 2012 Chardonnay offers up notes of orange marmalade and caramelized citrus. Pure, rich and fruity, it was aged in a combination of stainless steel and barrel, and the fruit comes entirely from Napa Valley (even more amazing for $19 a bottle)."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
