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

Our 2008 Monterey Pinot Noir shows a medium ruby red color, which belies the intensity of this beautiful wine. The aromas of ripe, spicy red fruits leap from the glass. On the palate, full-bodied flavors of bright red berries fill the mouth and linger on a long, supple finish. At Bernardus, all our Pinot Noir grapes are hand picked, hand sorted and fermented in small batches.

Critical Acclaim

"Great price for a dry, crisply elegant Pinot Noir of this sophistication. It's made in a lighter style, with a silky mouthfeel and interesting, complex cherry pulp and cherry skin, cola and pomegranate flavors. Editors' choice. "

This site was chosen because of its unique joining of varied soils and sunny inland climate moderated by a marine influence - ideal conditions for the production of Bordeaux varietals.
