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

This wine is full of life and fruit. It also has more structure and tannin than the 2001 vintage.

In 2002, a very good set in the spring was followed by even temperatures throughout the growing season. The season ended perfectly with high temperatures in September resulting in rapid maturation of the fruit. This shot of heat was a huge boost to the quality of the vintage.

Blend: 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Produced entirely from fruit acquired from Paul Champoux's Champoux Vineyard, the 2002 Sorella is fashioned from 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Petit Verdot. Tar-laced black fruits, sweet spices, and herbs are found in this beauty’s aromas as well as flavors. Medium-bodied, muscular, and intricate, it is a lovely, concentrated, as well as complex offering with a long, flavor-packed, and slightly warm (from alcohol) finish."
