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

This wine was grown at two sites in the Edna Valley, which are southwest facing and consist of clay loam soils mixed with small white calcareous stones. It is brilliant straw-yellow in color with a pronounced and aromatic nose, a mix of crusty baguette, mango, apple and vanilla. The mouth is full and rich, with buttery notes, firm acidity and lingering tropical flavors. This is a rich wine with moderate oak notes, Chardonnay fruit aromas and food pleasing acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"A deliciously complex Chardonnay, nearly as good as the winery’s single-vineyard wines, which makes it a great value. Smooth and clean, it shows vanilla cream, pineapple tart, Key lime pie and buttered toast flavors. Vibrant acidity keeps it all uplifted and bright."
