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 approachable, food friendly wine has bright orange blossom, Meyer lemon, and grapefruit characters supported by a round mouthfeel.

Enjoy with grilled fish, oysters, or spicy foods.

Critical Acclaim

"Celebrity chef Florence, in partnership with Rob Mondavi, from Folio Fine Wine Partners, has crafted this delicious, zesty Sauvignon Blanc. It’s so rich in kiwi, lime, tangerine, wildflower, vanilla and mineral flavors, it’s practically a food group in itself, but bright acidity grounds and balances it. Great job at a good price."

Learn About Tyler Florence

"On December 11, 2009, I met with Michael Mondavi and his family at their beautiful winery in Carneros, at the southern tip of Napa Valley. Michael, his son Rob Mondavi, Jr., and his daughter Dina and I sat around a table and conducted our first blending session for Tyler Florence Wines. One of the things I love best about putting together my recipes Is experimenting with different ingredients in order to combine flavors in perfect balance. Turns out, it's one of my favorite things about wine making, too."
