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 2009 Bench Blend Chardonnay displays complex, intense fruit aromas of ripe peach, tropical fruit, and melon. This full bodied wine offers concentrated stone fruit flavors combined with toasted oak and vanilla nuances that offers a lush, lingering finish that is refreshing.
