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

A blend of 87% Pinot Noir and 13% other Rhone varietals.

Pleasant wafts of nutmeg and spice complement the supple, silky core of black cherry and plum in our 2007 Pinot Noir. Ripe fruit develops across the finish, with silky tannins gently holding the nuanced oak through the lingering finish. With juicy fruit and well-balanced acidity, this Pinot Noir offers effortless enjoyment with a variety of dishes such as pasta tossed with wild mushrooms, roasted chicken or stuffed pork tenderloin.

Following harvest, the grapes for the Pinot Noir were gently destemmed and cold soaked to build complexity and richness. A long, cool fermentation in stainless steel focused the intrinsic brightness and fresh plum and cherry flavors. The resulting wine has well-integrated flavors and vibrant fruit character.
