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

This excellent vintage brought forth all the juicy character, depth and concentration possible in Los Carneros Chardonnay. On the nose, Meyer lemon takes center stage, complemented by subtle toast, heather and allspice aromas. The generous palate offers broad avors of yellow apple, custard, tangerine and toffee. Seamless and full –bodied, this opulent release is balanced by fresh acidity and a lingering nish of sweet spice.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Chardonnay Los Carneros is treated similarly, but with slightly more new oak (28%) utilized. It offers honeyed, caramelized hazelnut and buttered citrus notes, less tropical fruit characteristics and a more Burgundian, smoky, full-bodied mouthfeel."
