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

The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc is pretty with a light greenish straw color. The initial aroma is white peach, with lemon grass, subtle mandarin orange and a slight oak spice. The flavor expresses a minerality complimenting fruit components of citrus, green melon, lemon grass and mandarin orange.

Received as the wine club selection and loved the crispness. It was so refreshing with spicy fish tacos and left me wanting more. I am going to order some now.

Received this in the wine club and was very pleased. One of the most lush, smooth and beautiful sauvignon blanc's I have had. Served this to friends during a visit, and we all commented it was almost "very chardonnayish" Still holds the fresh and crisp characteristics you would expect, but with softer tones, and a lush feel in the mouth. This will become my special occasion sauvignon blanc.
