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

Aroma: Sweet cherry, white chocolate, strawberry, fresh ginger and nutmeg.

Flavor: Sweet cherry, strawberry, and vanilla. Secondary flavors include roasted meat and savory herbs, dried cranberries, caramel and baking spices - cloves, nutmeg and ginger. The texture is voluptous and fills your mouth while the acid perks up the taste buds and give the wine a "salivacious" quality. The finish is long and complex.

Critical Acclaim

"Light red. Pungent redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by musky herbs, flowers and licorice. Light in weight, with finely etched red berry flavors that possess sneaky power and are framed by silky tannins. Dusty mineral and dried rose notes build with air and carry through the tightly focused finish. I like this wine's understated, fat-free personality."

This is a very bright (on the nose especially), fruit forward Pinot, that accentuates red cherry on the palate, and delivers a long and pleasant finish.
