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

Red fruit dominates the flavor profile. Mouthwatering perception of acid makes this a fabulous food wine. Layers of ripe cherry, dried cranberry, rhubarb and raspberry fruits combine with notes of cinnamon and earthy minerality. The wine is elegant, finessed and well balanced with long "cranberry zing" finish which lingers. The texture is silky and the wine is medium bodied with fine tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Ripe strawberry and raspberry aromas show good freshness and suave floral and Indian spice nuances. Fleshy red fruit flavors gain depth and power with air, picking up notes of cola and bitter chocolate. Leaves peppery spice and medicinal cherry notes behind on the long, supple, gently tannic finish. I like this savory pinot's depth and grip. "

Style: Smooth & Supple
A beautifully subtle and drinkable wine. Immediately pleasureable to my taste buds. When I poured a glass for my husband, who had gotten tired of drinking pinots, he remarked how good this wine was. Glad I bought more of this at a great price.

Very light, even for a pinot. Lovely fresh berry flavor though and very enjoyable to drink.

A touch too light for my tastes. Enjoyable but seems lacking in character.
