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

Our 2009 Columbia Valley Riesling offers our trademark heady aromatics of tangerine, apricots, ripe pineapple and savory spices. White peach, sweet pear and Honeydew melon flavors along with a subtle minerality are followed by a firm acidity that balances the wine against the residual sugar.

Not a big fan of this riesling, though could have been something related to delivery or storage. Pretty dry riesling, on the tart side, and not a lot of character.
