Alcohol By Volume: 13.2%

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

Savory aromas with high-tone mineral (read volcanic) notes, wild blueberry, lavender scented. Uplifting, juicy taste. Bright and ripe at the center, high-tone red and blue fruits, mineral notes, and some saline. Will soften in the sort term and continue to gain complexity for many years.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and savory at once, with scents of rye flour and lees crosshatched with red cherry, this has a classic Eola–Amity Hills profile, with red-fruited elegance and a curt mineral close. The tone reflects the vintage: pristine fruit, fresh and brisk, lifted and finely wrought. It’s a wine built to age, and delicious now."
94 Points

"Ruby-red. Intense, spice-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry and potpourri, with a bright mineral overtone. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering an array of red fruit flavors and notes of spicecake and sassafras. Closes tangy and very long, with slow-building sweetness and gentle tannins adding shape."
93 Points

"Fresh and vibrant, offering depth without weight, with dark berry, plum and spice flavors that hint at savory sage and tobacco as the finish lingers effortlessly. "
