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

The long, cool growing season was advantageous for the white varieties on the property. The flavors and aromatics are excellent and the wines come across as having a great deal of freshness. The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is abundant with aromas of melon, lemon verbena, toasted marshmallow and citrus zest with a medium-body and vibrant finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A barrel-fermented sauvignon grown at Phelps' Spring Valley Vineyard, this wine shows its oak in scents of vanilla and the solidity of the structure. Firm, juicy lime flavors last past the oak, balanced toward sweetness."
