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 beautiful vintage is a reflection of Pinot Noir's true nature—demure at first glance but layered and complex upon further exploration. Fresh, bright aromas of red currant and cranberry are accented by mandarin orange and a sassy hint of cinnamon. Flavors of pie cherries, pomegranate and a lingering whisper of clove flow across the palate like luxurious satin sheets. The silky smooth mouth feel allows the flavors to linger until the next sip.

Critical Acclaim

"Full red. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of red and dark berries, incense and lavender. Juicy, deeply pitched black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show good energy and pick up notes of cola and black tea with air. Finishes on a bright, spicy note, with tangy acidity adding lift and cut."
