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

Although all of Snoqualmie wines are made with minimal intervention, grapes used in the "Naked" wine series are farmed as "au naturel" as possible. "Naked" is made with certified organically grown grapes in a certified organic facility. Very true to the varietal, these wines fit in perfectly with the winemaker's philosophy that it is best to leave Mother Nature alone - let nature take her course and then try to capture the natural essence of the vineyard in the bottle

Black cherry fruit impression in the nose, with ample structure and natural berry fruit flavors on the palate - like eating fresh Merlot berries off the vine. 100% of the fruit is from Horse Heaven Hills vineyards in the Columbia Valley.

Learn About Merlot

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
