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

Look for bright orange and stone fruit aromas, punctuated by butterscotch and caramel corn. In the mouth, vibrant notes of lemon zest and mineral blend with toasty shortbread overtones. Elegant and beautifully balanced, a broad mid-palate leads to a subtly spicy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 3,000 case lot of 2007 Chardonnay Carneros is superb. Complex notes of hazelnut, popcorn, orange marmalade, and background oak are subtle yet persistent. Drink this beauty over the next several years."
