Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

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

The 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir opens with fresh aromas of boysenberry supported by deeper tones of anise, espresso bean and earth. The palate expands into black cherry and dark chocolate flavors, rounded by cola and clove. Well-structured and decidedly velvety, the supple tannins and spice linger on a long satisfying nish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley impresses for its overall harmony and balance. The style is rich, voluptuous and inviting, with tons of richness and pure volume. Raspberry jam, wild flowers, rose petals and spices wrap around the racy, inviting finish."
