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

Shining ruby red color. A fresh, fruity and velvety wine with great body. With red berries, strawberries, violet and chocolate aromas, it is a vigorous and attractive wine which combines strength and elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Pinot Noir spent 8 months in French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an engaging perfume of raspberry, cherry, and cinnamon. Very concentrated with intense sweet fruit, the wine has excellent varietal character, light tannin, and 1-2 years of aging potential. Drink this value-priced Pinot over the next 5-6 years. "
