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 Lorenzo Vineyard is thirty-three year old vineyard that occupies a unique site just west of the city of Santa Rosa and less than 25 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Cool climate and clayey soil make for an especially late bud break in spring and a long hang time for the fruit to reach maturity.

This rich, complex wine pairs well with a range of cuisines and helps to turn any meal into a memorable occasion. Some our favorite pairings include sea scallops and halibut, as well as cream sauced dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"From one of my favorite sites (made famous by Helen Turley) is the 2008 Chardonnay Lorenzo. Attractive aromas of citrus oil, lemon butter, orange blossoms, flowers and an unmistakable minerality jump from the glass of this light green/gold-hued wine. Great acids, a consistent component of this cool site, buttress a rich, flavorful Chardonnay that is reminiscent of a hypothetical blend of white Burgundy and a northern California white. This is a beauty of complexity (lots of flowers and fruit), structure and depth. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
94+ points."
