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

Our 2007 Santa Barbara County Chardonnay is sourced from a combination of the cool climate of the Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills and the warm, balmy blocks of the La Plata Vineyard of Santa Barbara County. The nose combines a touch of minerality from the cooler sites, while rich, ripe notes of golden pear, papaya and mango are from the inland, more continental climates. Flavors of Golden Delicious apples, Meyer lemons, tropical fruits and sweet cream are balanced with crisp acidity and a silky mouthfeel. The finish lingers with notes of vanilla and coconut from the barrel fermentation. The rich texture and bright fruit of the 2007 Chardonnay make it a perfect wine for sipping alone, or an easy pairing with grilled halibut, creamy cheeses, roast chicken or cream-based pasta dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Scents of lemon and nectarine brighten the ripe pear flavors in this big-shouldered chardonnay. It shows fine integration and balance throughout, leading to a firm, gripping finish. It's a complex, satisfying partner for pan-roasted halibut."
