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

Fruit-forward aromas of boysenberry and strawberry jam join with spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla; bright acidity with smooth tannins and a lingering finish.

This refreshing, fruity Pinot Noir is wonderfully versatile on the table and can be served with a wide range of foods, including pork, chicken, lamb and wild salmon.

Blend: 99% Pinot Noir and 1% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and straightforward with red cherry flavors, this is a simple pinot noir with hints of eucalyptus and mint in the blunt tannins. Pour it with braised wild duck or other game birds."
