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

Irony 2008 Monterey County Pinot Noir opens with aromas of ripe, red cherry, vanilla and undertones of earthy clove and mushroom. Rhubarb flavors are layered with accents of toasted vanilla and soft tannins, delivering a balanced, medium-bodied wine with a smooth finish. Enjoy this wine with lamb, grilled salmon and medium-hard cheeses.
