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

The Alexander Valley Estate Zinfandel is a robust wine of great depth with aromas and flavors of wild berries, dark cherries and plums.

Critical Acclaim

"The Trentadues have an eye for good vineyard land. They bought their 208-acre Alexander Valley estate in 1959, and it's been the source of Ridge's Geyserville Zinfandel (first bottled in 1967); later in 1974, as Ridge's partners were collecting vineyards on Monte Bello, the Trentadues sold them their piece of that historic Santa Crus Mountain property. At $17, their basic Alexander Valley zin is a steal, all blue fruit, graphite-smooth tannins and bright edges of evergreen. That cool, juniper-like scent contrasts the warmth of the finish, keeping it bright. For any grilled meats.

The Trentadues were among the very first to plant new vines in Sonoma County since the days of Prohibition. Italians love their red wines, especially hearty reds like Carignane. In 1962, the Trentadue family began planting new Carignane vines in addition to the 68 acres of old vines already growing on their ranch. Now more than 35 years old, these vines are among the oldest producing Carignane vineyards in America. The family remains steadfastly devoted to this grape, and their wine ranks indisputably among just a handful of top ranked California Carignane.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
