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

The Pisoni Vineyard was one of the locations that produced a bigger than normal Pinot Noir in 2010. Pisoni is never a shrinking violet when it comes to Pinot Noir, so saying that 2010 is big certainly means something. Historically, this Pinot Noir displays incredible fruit concentration, with blue and blackberry pie flavors, hints of warm earth and spice, and a full, long finish. This is a wine that, while it drinks well now, will only improve with several years in the cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"A tempting style that teases with subtle black cherry, fresh earth, black tea and spicy nuances. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, well-focused and persistent, ending with a smoky aftertaste. Should only get better. Best from 2013 through 2021. 313 cases made."
92 Points

"The 2010 Pinot Noir Pisoni is direct and frank. Layers of dark red fruit burst from this energetic, focused wine. There is good depth, but the aromas and flavors don’t quite have the complexity or delineation of the very best Pinots here. Still, it is impossible not to admire the sheer purity of the fruit that comes off Pisoni. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016."
