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

Our 2007 Zinfandel comes from a famed 15-year-old dry-farmed vineyard located on an alluvial fan just north of St. Helena. The vineyard has many rounded river cobbles with good soil drainage. The fruit comes from three different blocks within the vineyard, each with different rootstock.

Enticing aromas of brambly blackberry and cherry greet the nose and feature a hint of spice with floral back notes, as ripe flavors of blackberry jam greet the palate. The fruit forward tannins and structured acidity of this wine deliver ripe red cherry to the mid palate as notes of spice commingle for a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Intricate flavors of blackberries, cherries, raspberries and honey-nut granola mark this deliciously dry wine, spiced with exotic cinnamon, star anise and pepper. It’s very good, although it could have a firmer structure. Ready now."
