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

With minimal and gentle handling of my wines in the cellar and by seeking balanced, low yields in selected vineyards, I strive to produce handmade wines of individuality and elegance. Enjoy these wines in good spirits, and with good health and good friends!

Eric's Pinot Noirs emphasize his credo of "elegance over power" and are sensuous wines with broad dark notes of earth and spice. On the palate, they are richly textured and provide a lingering, satin-like finish. Each bears Hamacher's winemaking style of soft tannins and near perfect balance.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley was sourced from relatively old vines (25+ years). It offers up a fragrant perfume of toast, spice box, earth notes, black cherry, and black raspberry. On the palate it displays an elegant personality, medium body, savory flavors, a silky texture, and excellent depth. This impeccably balanced Pinot will provide pleasure through 2019."

"Eric Hamacher has done a fine job with this wine. At 13.6% alcohol it is in fine balance, with a precise mix of strawberry, pie cherry, root beer and herb flavors. It’s medium bodied, open and accessible, but not too simple. There is no reason to wait, but it could be cellared for up to six years."

Beautiful color and mouth feel. Fruity and smoky with a bit of a bite at the end but very enjoyable.
