Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 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 2007 Pinot Noir triangulates beautiful fruit, beautiful structure and beautiful balance.   According to Véronique Drouhin-Boss, "the joy of Pinot Noir is exceptionally clear in this vintage. In tasting the wine, I remember how strong the vineyards were at harvest, how we picked, block by block, how delighted my father and I were by the fermentations. This is a wine that will age for at least 5-8 years, and almost certainly longer, but I love it now, too."

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is the bottling most people are likely to encounter. Medium ruby-colored, it has a fragrant perfume of cedar, spice box, eucalyptus/menthol, cherry, and raspberry. Made in an elegant, racy style, this medium-bodied effort has a vibrant core of spicy red fruits, moderate ripe tannin, excellent intensity, and savory flavors. It will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2019."
90 Points

"This latest Domaine Drouhin Pinot fits the classic Oregon model to a "tee" in that is offers up plenty of lithe fruit and quiet spice while keeping overt ripeness in check. It is not a wine that will please fans of high extract, but it is anything but anemic or thin, and its precise, incisively fruity flavors show remarkable length on the palate. It reminds that a wine can be serious and speak in soft tones at one and the same time, and it will find an easy place with wide range of foods."
