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 2005 vintage in Los Carneros was cool and slow-paced. From maturation through harvest, days were sunny and mild, allowing Chardonnay flavors to develop gradually with pronounced acidity and lower alcohol.

The 2005 de la Guerra Chardonnay presents a strong core of acid supplemented with a vibrant mix of grapefruit, apricot, vanilla and mineral notes. These same aromas and flavors link to each other in a bright, citrus finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale color. Crisp apple and pear aromas complicated by pepper and white flowers.Bright and crisp, with piquant quince and pepper notes perking up the apple and pear flavors. Dry, juicy and quite restrained chardonnay with firm acidity and a light touch. Finishes minerally and persistent, with a suggestion of beeswax. Not at all a fat or sweet style of chardonnay."
