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

Aromas of ripe pineapple, lemon zest, cinnamon, and Asian pears. Lush entry of ripe Anjou pears, mouthwatering acidity, lemon custard, and intense mineral focus. This wine is lush enough to enjoy now, but there is acidity to age, and this wine will will lay down gracefully for the next 5-7 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Clean, mineral and savory, this pleasantly green-tinged white has just a hint of celery leaf that lends complexity to a dark lees note. The flavors remain on the savory side, the tone bright, lean and pure, with both the richness and elegance to pair with a classic roast chicken a la Julia Child. "
