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

#77 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Appearance: Golden straw with brilliant luminosity.

Aroma: Fresh pear, peach blossom, lime, grapefruit, and floral notes.

Flavor: Lively citrus, peach, tropical fruit, mineral, and honey.

Mouthfeel: Crisp entry, nice texture, long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and lively, brimming with lemon meringue, golden raisin and green tea character. Finishes with zip. Drink now."
90 Points

"King Estate's 2008 Signature is slightly richer than past vintages, with a peachlike scent that gives way to weighty pear and white peach flavors. It has a satisfying fullness and the palate weight for pork loin."
90 Points

This was considered very good by 4 people in a home wine tasting but not necessarily better than our memories of the King Estate Pinot Gris. Everyone likes both.

An Oregon wine can simply state Oregon as its place of origin, which typically means the grapes came from multiple smaller AVAs within the state. Beyond the main AVAs of Oregon, like Willamette Valley, Rogue and Umpqua, smaller regions are gaining ground. Some you may see on the label include: Columbia or Walla...
