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 wine exhibits a golden honey hue with pure Granny Smith apple aromas along with distinctive notes of lime blossom and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is rich and round and unfolds to reveal shortbread and pineapple flavors that linger.

This well-structured wine will pair well with seafood entrees, roasted poultry dishes and even spicy Asian cuisine. Made with 100% Chardonnay.

Critical Acclaim

"The cuvee most likely to be encountered by readers is the 2009 Chardonnay Overlook, a blend assembled by longtime winemaker Eric Stern for proprietors Mike and Mary Colhoun. Completely accessed from Sonoma fruit (as opposed to several previous examples that came from numerous California appellations), it exhibits a light green/gold color as well as notes of nectarines, white peaches and hints of honey as well as tropical fruits. Medium to full-bodied, pure and fresh with the wood pushed to the background, this dry, classy white should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years."

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...
