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

A medium ruby color suggests a softer wine, but one swirl reveals that the Gold Ridge Pinot Noir is anything but a lightweight. Rich blackberry. raspberry and blueberry explode from the glass, accompanied by pepper, coca bean, and a hint of grilled meat. Incredibly lush blackberry, blueberry and currant greet the palate and are joined as they linger by a hint of char and wild raspberry. This rich, full-bodied Pinot refuses to subside on the finish, with concentrated blackberry and just a touch of dark chocalate.

Critical Acclaim

"An extraordinary wine. It’s the essence of Russian River Pinot, squared, a big, concentrated, dramatic wine that never loses sight of elegance. Offers a tapestry of cherry pie with the crust, red currant, cherry liqueur and smoky sandalwood flavors that finish with intricate Indian spices. Drink now through 2013."
