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 is Cooper Mountain's signature and most popular Pinot Noir. This vintage is particularly memorial for Pinot Noirs that express elegance and blue fruit. The palate is laced with blueberry, pomegranate and violet and finishes with soft elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"Finely rendered black-cherry scents are marked by earthy notes, like a fine Pu-erh tea. The flavors of pipe tobacco, black raspberry and cherry are driven by fine acidity and tannins that are thrilling in their on-a-dime precision. Best Buy."
93 Points

"A wonderfully fresh, elegant and pure nose offers up notes of ripe red berries, briar and floral hints. There is a cool restrained to the equally pure middle weight flavors that possess good detail and plenty of verve while terminating in a mildly austere finish that displays fine balanced and length. This is quite dry and clean in the best sense and I really like the delivery here. Excellent value."
