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

Wind is a fact of life int he wide open landscape of eastern Washington state. Breezes blow throughout the seasons, moderating the sun's influence on, and adding character to ripening fruit in the vineyards. Our Sauvignon Blanc embodies that character with flavors of fresh melon and fig edge with crisp notes of citrus.

Enjoy with chicken, scallops or an icy plate of oysters.

Critical Acclaim

"Fleshy and fruity, fresh and full bodied, this generous wine offers scents of orange peel and citrus, and the palate exudes ripe flavors of grapefruit, lime and a hint of melon. Best Buy."
