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

This 100% Sauvignon Blanc was made from grapes grown naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides, at our cool American Canyon and Carneros vineyards. The combination of the right clones and cool growing region produced crisp flavors of Meyer lemon, white peach, and dried apricot with mineral notes that are perfect with a wide range of food, including grilled fish, goat cheese salad and spicy Mexican or Asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and juicy with tropical fruit, citrus and some minerals and spice; deep, complex and elegant with depth and good length. "

I'm usually a big fan of Grgich Hills. This is just not what one thinks of when thinking of a Fume Blanc. Too oaky, too buttery and too fruity. Nothing subtle about this wine. Chardonnay lovers may like it.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
