Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
The 2012 Siduri Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir a big, rich wine with plenty of boisterous personality. It possesses great fruit and a rich, velvet like mid-palate. On the finish, a bit of the whole cluster character sneaks in, providing the wine with balancing backbone and tannins. The wine should age well for quite a few years, with the biggest challenge being holding them rather than drinking them.
"Classy all around and a complete wine, the 2012 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard dishes out beautiful, mineral-tinged aromas and flavors, medium to full body and serious focus and vibrancy on the palate. This has the richness of the Sierra Mar and Garys', yet better focus. It will have 10-12 years of evolution.
Range: 91-93 points"
The Wine Advocate
"The 2012 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard is rich, boisterous and deeply expressive, as wines from this site often are. Personally, I lean towards some of the more mineral-driven wines in this range, but the 2012 Pisoni will no doubt thrill readers who prefer dark, juicy, fruit-driven Pinots. Here, too, the wine's balance and sense of place are both impeccable.
