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

Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV) is the Inman Family's organically farmed estate vineyard. This 10.45 acre vineyard is located at the junction of Olivet and Piner Roads amidst some of Sonoma County's and the Russian River Valley's most respected vineyards.

Color: Bright garnet Aroma: Rose petal, cherry, raspberry, black tea, ginger, clove and star anise. Flavor: Red fruit dominates the flavor profile. Layers of sweet, ripe cherry, dried cranberry, rhubarb and raspberry fruits combine with clove and cinnamon spice. The wine is elegant, finessed and well balanced with OGV's signature long finish revealing iron and mineral along with strawberry and cherry and cocoa powder hints. The texture is like silk satin and wine is medium bodied and has fine tannins. This wine should continue to improve with careful cellaring until at least 2015.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid red. Cherry, dried flowers, baking spices and smoky minerals on the nose. Supple cherry-cola and blackberry on the palate, with gentle tannins and minerals adding structure and focus. The spicy notes recur on the finish, which leaves refreshingly bitter cherry skin and anise notes behind. I like this wine's blend of depth and vivacity. "OGV" stands for Olivet Grove Vineyard."
