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

Juicy strawberry jumps out of the glass, followed by raspberry and cherries. The berry bouquet is complemented by mandarin orange and papaya. The palate has exotic flavors of mango and cantaloupe, followed by mouthwatering citrus. A juicy viscosity leads to a long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A terrific blush bubbly, rich and sophisticated in the mouth. The mousse is very fine and silky, and the flavors are just tremendous. Raspberries, strawberries, brioche, sweet vanilla and toast end in a long, opulent swirl of spices. This Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend comes mostly from Napa and Sonoma counties."
93 Points

"Lots of vigorous young fruit is teamed with a good bit of toasty, autolyzed yeast right from the outset here, and, while showing the vinosity and substance that we expect from good Rosé, it is first and foremost a lovely example of careful champenization. It is charged by a wealth of tiny, pinpointy bubbles and it lasts and lasts at the finish, and, as good as it is when sipped by itself, it will show even better when invited to dinner as a foil to a creamy chicken fricassee or grilled salmon steaks."
93 Points

"Delicate as a feather, with lovely strawberry blossom aromas and rich but elegant flavors of raspberry, white chocolate and cinnamon spice that finish with a crisp minerality. Drink now through 2016. 9,400 cases made."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. 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...

Learn About Rosé

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
