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 enticing and delectable 2010 Vin Gris of Pinot Noir has a wonderful, deep rose color and a fragrant, spicy bouquet of strawberry and raspberry with a kiss of jasmine. Flavors of pomegranate and cranberry are vibrant, bright and bold with good body and depth making a wine that is delicious and fun, with a surprisingly long and pleasing finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Vin Gris of Pinot Noir, a saignee of Pinot Noir, is a gorgeous, striking wine loaded with class and personality. Varietal fruit comes through loud and clear in this beautiful, broad shouldered rose. The wine was aged in stainless steel and did not undergo malolactic fermentation. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013. "
