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

An effusive bouquet of roasted chestnuts, brioche and narcissus. Bright acidity on entry with notes of kumquat and quince paste, balance by latepalate minerality. With time in the glass or decanter, the signature savory and muskiness of this wine emerge. Delightfully energetic and fruity in its youth, this is a Chardonnay that will continue to develop richness and complexity with cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Classy and delicious, this shows all you could ask for in the way of flavors of ripe tropical fruit and rich oak, with a buttery, creamy texture. With bright acidity and a firm minerality at its center, it’s also structurally balanced and elegant."
93 Points

"The 2010 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard is gorgeous. Sweet apricots, succulent pears, flowers, honeysuckle and mint are some of the many nuances that are woven together in this highly expressive, nuanced Chardonnay. The Sangiacomo finds its minerality on the mid-palate, which propels the fruit through to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016."
93 Points

"Bright yellow-gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruit faromas are lifted by zesty mineral and ginger nuances, with notes of vanilla and mace in the background. Fleshy and expansive on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering fresh pear and nectarine flavors and a touch of honey on the back. Closes sappy and long, with lingering spice and orange zest notes."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
