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 is a beautifully aromatic, with bright red notes awakening the senses. It's very elegant and classic, full of zingy acidity, cranberry and cherry flavors, pinot funk and herbal notes in the mid palate and a layered finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Light in texture, with a minerally edge to the blackberry and cassis flavors, lingering easily against refined tannins on the elegant finish. Drink now through 2018."
92 Points

"The 2008 Pinot Noir Stewart was made primarily from the Pommard clone sourced from the Dundee Hills. Slightly deeper in color than the Pappas cuvee, it gives up aromas of bing cherry, floral notes, incense, and plum. With plenty of volume on the palate, ample ripe tannin, and plenty of spicy fruit, this tasty effort will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking from 2012 to 2020."
