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

Rich aromas of black cherry, cranberry, and strawberry; with subtle notes of citrus blossom, tea, and earth. The mouth is silky and round; with flavors of plum, rhubarb, and sweet vanilla. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"The way this wine’s sour cherry flavor melds into its earthy spice seems distinctly Carneros. A selection from the Truchard family’s estate vineyards at the base of Mt. Veeder, it feels like it was made from healthy fruit, light and simple, not pushed toward intensity or extremes of ripeness. For a grilled whole sea bass stuffed with thyme. Best Buy"
