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

This wine has a distinctive and recognizable Russian River flavor profile. On the nose, the wine carries a bouquet of rose petal and spice that lead to flavors of bing cherry and raspberry on the palate. The finish is layered and balanced, with dusty earth overtones.

Critical Acclaim

"Lush and rich with sweet black cherry and smooth, silky texture; deep, ripe and balanced with juicy fruit and fine balance; long and lovely."
92 Points

"A restrained yet attractively perfumed nose of red pinot fruit, dark cherry and subtle spiced plum notes introduces delicious, cool and quite pure medium bodied flavors that exhibit good verve on velvety and generous finish. This is well-balanced, dusty and mouth coating and is really quite pretty."
90 Points
