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

Inviting aromas of stone and tropical notes begin the nose on this classic Sonoma Chardonnay. Well balanced and elegant, this wine has a clean, refreshing finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Chardonnay is a fabulous wine for the money. There is nothing fancy here, just a beautiful wine with excellent varietal character and terrific balance. Hints of lemon, flowers and spices linger on the pointed finish. The Robert Young vineyard in Alexander Valley is at the heart of this county-wide blend. Once again, the level of quality is remarkable considering the production of a whopping 350,000 cases."

A weak Chardonnay. I prefer a deeper more robust flavor. I really like their Reds though.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
