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

At Blackstone's Kenwood winery in Sonoma Valley, winemaker Gary Sitton focuses on crafting wines that express the geographic diversity and essence of Sonoma County. The Sonoma Reserve wines represent the finest growers and vineyards of the region, and they embody the accessible, fruit-forward and balanced style characteristics of Blackstone.

The 2007 Sonoma Reserve Chardonnay displays vibrant freshness and forward fruit. Aromas of vanilla creme brulee, pineapple, and pear tart emerge and complement zesty lemon, green apple, and toasty oak flavors. This crisp, elegant Chardonnay with golden straw hues exhibits bright acidity, balance, and forward fruit. The alluringly creamy texture in the mouth has a long and luscious finish that pairs well with lobster bisque, mild cheeses, or flavorful chicken dishes.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
