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

Always the most challenging, yet the most fun blend to craft. The nose is redolent of blackberries, plums, toffee and crème brûlée. The rich/full tannins accentuate the blackberry/plummy fruits and complement the creamy, silky finish and the concentrated berry/spicy flavors. This wine truly expresses the classic finesse and depth of complexity that you would expect from Russian River Valley pinot noir. A classic Russian River Valley blend comprised of over 95% Estate fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid red. Fragrant, highly perfumed bouquet evokes raspberry, gingerbread and fresh rose. Juicy and lithe, offering tangy red fruit flavors that display very good spicy lift and cut. Sweeter on the very persistent finish, leaving a deep cherry quality behind."
