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 2011 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is an assemblage of Northern Willamette Valley vineyard sites and is a fine example of expert blending by Lange Winery winemakers. In their true "classique" style, this wine is imminently approachable and fruit-forward upon release. Notes of bramble and earth interplay with dark cherry, raspberry, and barrel spice. The bright yet soft palate is driven by cherry candy, apricot, cola, and hints of black licorice.

Critical Acclaim

"This leads with mocha and leather scents before plummy sweetness emerges with air. Its dark core of fruit tastes as if it were dusted with unsweetened chocolate. Give this a year in the cellar to come together."
