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 wine opens with seductive aromas of mineral-spice and green apple. Rich yet refreshingly crisp, the 2008 Chardonnay has flavors of honeydew melon and Bosc pear complemented by hints of vanillin oak.

This Chardonnay is an excellent match for Caesar salad, roasted salmon or rotisserie chicken.

Critical Acclaim

"A simple, airy chardonnay without pretense, this runs on pear and mineral flavors rather than oak. Try it if you enjoy simple Mâconnais whites."

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...
