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

Sweet strawberry, cherry and toffee notes are laced with spiced tea, soft oak, and cranberry accents. Silky tannins join a long, berry fruit finish.

Pair with fresh Northwest salmon, grilled seasonal vegetables brushed with olive oil, and artisinal cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium ruby color, deep spicy red cherry aromas with some cola notes; rich, ripe, bright red cherry flavors with nice spicy notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Very tasty Pinot with bright and spicy flavors."
