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

After harvest, we placed whole-clusters of fruit into open-top fermenters and performed punch downs several times a day. Once the must was pressed, we placed the wine into small French oak barrels for a year to undergo maturation, racking it several times throughout its development.

Our 2008 Director's Cut Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir displays a vibrant personality and silky texture. It's highly aromatic, with scents of cloves, tea leaves, and roses, followed by bright flavors of red cherries, cranberries, and plums.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
