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

Aside from the fact Pinot Noir has a delicate nature and is therefore tricky to work with, we are careful to extract as much color as possible from the grapes without accumulating too much tannin. In the cellar, we place whole clusters of fruit into open-top fermenters and punch down several times a day. The must is then pressed and placed into small barrels where it matures for nearly a year, undergoing racking throughout its development. Our 2007 Pinot Noir shows rich, seductive flavors and a velvety texture. It offers pure impressions of strawberries, raspberries and cherries as well as a hint of lavender and fragrant notes of clove and sandalwood.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. 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...
