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 Chime Sonoma Pinot Noir show a dense bright purple color as well as a nose packed with cherry kirsch, white pepper spice, fresh tilled earth, and subtle vanilla wood aromas. The mouth feel is plump and loaded with savory fruit; finishing expansive and luscious.

Critical Acclaim

"The wine is dry, silky in texture and crisp in acids, showing the textural hallmarks of a fine coastal bottling. The raspberry, cherry, cola and spice flavors are delicious and complex. A terrific value. - Editor's Choice"
