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 2009 Four Hearts Vineyards Chardonnay leads with aromas of white flowers, tangerine and lemon drop. Layered flavors of stone fruit, yellow apple and baking spices are complemented by a rich and weighty mid-palate and a mineral-driven finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyard sees less new oak than its two siblings. It reveals elegant tropical fruit, citrus oil, pear and white peach notes in a medium to full-bodied, crisp, zesty style. It can be enjoyed over the next 4-5 years.

93 Points

"Bright yellow. Restrained but focused aromas of pear, dusty stone, jasmine and vanillin oak. Broad, dense and tactile, with good mineral lift to the urgent flavors of white peach, orchard fruits and white flowers. The long, energetic finish displays admirable finesse and clarity."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. 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...
