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

Grapes were harvested September 12, 2008 at an average 23.9 Brix, then frozen to minus 5oF and subsequently pressed, after which the sugar content of the juice measured 35.0 Brix. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to 21% residual sugar and 8.0% alcohol and bottled in December, 2008. The estate-grown 2008 Scheurebe has delicate aromas of ripe peach and apricot followed by a rich and unctuous texture integrated with well balanced, bright acidity and a persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Assertive, extremely sugary sweet flavors have an equally extreme juicy acidity to balance them out. Musky herb, orange blossom and rose water mingle with lemon drop and apple turnover flavors. Very intense and delicious. Scheurebe. Drink now through 2014"
92 Points

"Pale yellow-gold. Peach and apricot nectar and honey on the slightly high-toned nose. Dense, thick and sweet, but the fruit salad and honey flavors are kept fresh by ripe acids. Finishes bright, pure and long, with an enticing sugar/acid balance. Made from frozen scheurebe grapes, but vintages that bring botrytis to the fruit (2006 was the most recent one) are exceptions."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
