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 wild fermentation and extended lees maturation in barrel have created a complexity and texture to the palate of this wine, as well as an vibrant purple hue. It is a supple wine with good fruit intensity and accordingly has aromas of sweet black cherries and hints of spicy oak. It will continue to drink well over the next few years.

Critical Acclaim

"From a single vineyard at the top of the Brancott Valley, this is a harmonious, silky-textured Pinot, with typical black cherry and sous bois notes and hints of charred beef and cedar. Finishes long, crisp and vibrant. Drink now-2016. Editors Choice."
