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

Over the last two-plus decades, the Russian River Valley has earned a reputation as one of California's premier AVAs for Chardonnay. The region's cool coastal climate and low-nutrient soils accentuate the rich, nuanced flavors of the grape without sacrificing structure. Our long-standing contract with the famed Dutton Ranch provides us with some of the best Chardonnay grapes in the Russian River Valley. It was custom planted with lower-yielding Chardonnay clones to express the best quality possible.

This is the essence of Russian River Chardonnay. The aromas are highlighted by apricots, nectarine and guava. The palate is of medium weight with concentrated peach and nectarine flavors. The finish is crisp and cleansing. This is the richest, fullest, most dramatic Unoaked Chardonnay we have made to date!
