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

You will immediately notice the intense color in the glass. The nose is, may we say, slightly ‘Burgundian' with hints of forest floor and barnyard. This is a juicy, rich mouth-filling Pinot Noir with amazing fruit. The texture is soft and sensuous and will leave you wanting more! Wood-roasted or braised meats compliment this wine. Any dishes with an ‘earthy' flavor, like wild mushroom risotto or truffle oil pasta would also be a perfect match.

Critical Acclaim

"Offers wonderful earthy complexity, with pretty toasty oak, dried currant and black cherry fruit that's supple, elegant, well-proportioned and full-bodied, ending with a long, layered finish. Drink now through 2014. 286 cases made."

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...
