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

Flint, sea air, meyer lemon and hints of brioche. Broad on the palate without losing focus. Finishes with bright acidity, lemon curd and salty minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"One of the most Chablis-like Chardonnays California has ever produced, of Premier Cru status. The alcohol officially is a mere 13% by volume, the wine is very dry, and there are mineral and slightly herbal flavors. Yet on the midpalate there’s an explosion of California pears, limes and tropical fruits. "
