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

The 2008 Brokenwood Pinot Noir is a mid-weight Pinot Noir. Good depth of color and youthful purple tints are evident. Great complexity to the aromas. Lifted red cherry over sweet earthy savory characters with a touch of oak sweetness. The balance is aided by ripe tannins giving a lingering finish. The will mature further, although enjoyable as a fresh, zippy young Pinot Noir.

Critical Acclaim

"Light, bright and clear crimson-purple; an elegant pinot, essentially unforced; sappy, spicy red cherry fruit drives the bouquet and palate with a gentle infusion of French oak. Scores for its authenticity and purity."
93 Points

"Light red. Heady aromas of strawberry, raspberry and smoky spices. Lively, supple red berry flavors are complicated by tangy spice and floral qualities. Very suave, with a sweet, lively, persistent finish and no rough edges. This is delicious right now."
90 Points

"Fragrant with forest floor scents of fraises des bois and mushrooms, this darkens and tightens into its cherry flavors and cool binding of acidity. It's clean and lasting, with a firm structure that suggests three or four years of aging."
