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

A serious yet easy-drinking red blend, loaded with lush black plum, blackberry, and creamy cocoa flavors, with accents of smoke and black tea. Juicy, creamy and round mouthfeel with soft tannins supporting generous fruit. The long finish is full of dense berries and mocha flavors. A rich, fruit-forward wine intended to be enjoyed within five years of vintage.

Blend: 45% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Zinfandel, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Syrah, 2% Malbec

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...
