Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

MacLean's Block is an estate owned vineyard nestled near redwood groves on a beautiful north-eastern facing slope off of Harrison Grade and Bones Roads near the small Russian River Valley town of Occidental.

Dark cherry and concentrated blackberry aromas and flavors are complemented by a broad and pliant texture and a mocha-spice finish. Focused layers of complexity and a long finish reminiscent of minerals and slate provide this small batch Pinot gem with enough structure to be an excellent candidate for long term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Pinot Noir MacLean's Block is a big, masculine wine bursting with expressive dark fruit. Firm tannins provide the backbone in this virile, unique Pinot. The MacLean's will appeal most to readers who appreciate a bigger, firmer style of Pinot."
