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 2010 WALT La Brisa Sonoma County Chardonnay boasts a deep straw color. Bright, playful aromatics featuring tropical fruit and melon followed by hints of sweet hazelnut and toasted marshmallow. The creamy palate is deep, lush, and overflowing with apricot, pear and citrus flavors with a penetrating, complex finish that sails on and on. Expect the wine to gain complexity over the next 2-5 years.

Critical Acclaim

"This clean, pure white features notes of ripe white peach, citrus, light cedary oak and cooking spices. Full-bodied and intense, this is a touch raw, complex and persistent. Drink now through 2018."
89 Points

"Hazy medium gold. Exotic, high-toned aromas of apricot nectar, pineapple, mango, honey and coconut; a bit Sauternes-like! Fine-grained, thick and exotic, but with plenty of underlying acidity giving shape to the wine's thick texture. Finishes with strong flavors of fresh and dried apricot. Totally unrestrained chardonnay for fans of the style."

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...
