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

Richly concentrated blackberry and raspberry fruit aromas accented by delicate violet and rose petal. A subtle and pleasing minerality helps to complement the lush briary fruit. On the palate, an abundance of black currant and wild berries. The opulent berry flavor drenches the palate. The middle softens to fig and sea-salted caramel, with restrained spice, intermingling to provide a long and decadent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Fragrant wilted rose notes are elegant and delicate, with ripe plum and wild berry flavors that are deceptively concentrated and detailed, picking up a raspberry, fresh loam and black tea edge on the finish."
94 Points

"The character of the Sonoma Coast comes through in the 2010 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard. Bright, chiseled and focused, the 2010 impresses for its energy and vibrancy. Slightly gamy at times, the Kanzler boasts great balance, complexity and class. The addition of a small amount of whole clusters adds aromatic lift on the finish. This is another terrific showing from Kosta-Browne. "
93 Points

"Bright red. Aromas of fresh red berries, cherry pit, cola and peppery spices. Vibrant and light on its feet, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and an exotic rose pastille nuance. Finishes with very good tangy cut and excellent floral persistence. This sexy wine is delicious right now."
