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

Just seventeen miles north of our Beringer Winery in St. Helena sits Knights Valley, an undeveloped hidden gem of volcanic rock and alluvial soils perfect for Bordeaux-style wines. For over three decades, Beringer has produced wines here, and now we're pleased to present this Knights Valley Meritage, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, showing notes of rich berry fruit, cocoa and smoky oak.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Red Blend Meritage, from vineyards in Knights Valley, is supple, inviting and totally delicious. Juicy dark berries, freshly cut flowers and licorice are some of the many nuances that inform the generous, caressing finish. The 2010 is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot."

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...
