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 color is straw with the slightest green cast, which is reminiscent of the color of the skins on freshly picked Chardonnay grapes. In the glass the wine shows exquisite aromas of green apple, lemon, and acacia that dominate the nose and carry through to the palate. In the mouth are flavors of guava, pineapple, and pear mixed with creamy yeast and roasted nut notes that are kept in check by a vibrant acidity. The subtle wood notes lend structure to the blend and lead to a long and refreshing finish.

This stylish approach to Chardonnay is best paired with medium-weight cuisine and is an especially pleasing partner to avocado-based dishes, spicy southeast Asian cuisine and light pastas.

Critical Acclaim

"This tastes like buttered toast, topped with orange marmalade and vanilla. The crisp acidity makes it feel bright and clean. Best Buy."

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