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

Displaying an enticing perfume of red cherry, raspberries, pomegranate, cedar and spice, this wine has a firm entry onto the palate followed by a core of plush, savory fruit, complex flavors. The pure, fruit-filled finish is complimented by well-integrated tannins and a lively core of acidity, making this an age-worthy vintage of Domaine Danielle Laurent.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Pinot Noir Domaine Danielle Laurent spent 13 months in 30% new oak before bottling without fining or filtration. Dark ruby red with an inviting aromatic array of balsam wood, exotic spices, cherry blossom, and assorted red fruits, on the palate it displays considerable elegance in contrast to the burly Hyland Vineyard. Velvety-textured, intensely flavored, and uplifted by lively acidity, it will evolve for 3-4 years and provide pleasure from 2013 to 2023. "
