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

Lot 96 has a bright bouquet full of red fruit aromas; raspberry jam and red currants; added notes of cherry blossoms develop with trailing scents of cedar, vanilla bean and toasty oak. The palate follows nose with more jammy raspberry flavors. This wine is easy and accessible with nice fruit to acid balance. The jammy finish lingers with fresh cherry pie ala mode flavors. An ideal wine to pair with all kinds of grilled meats, including sausages, Bar-B-Q friendly dishes and tomato/garlic pasta recipes.

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
