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

Intense and bright ruby in color, notes of fresh black cherries and blackberries are followed by toasty hints of vanilla coming from the French oak barrels. The wine carries a great freshness with mint and eucalyptus scents while spices of black pepper and strawberries blend together in the background. The result is a generous and complex aroma of fresh Pacific Ocean flowers blooming during spring time. The mouth feel is ample and the wine develops on the palate with superb structure, silky tannins and balanced acidity. French oak follows bright cherry notes on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A graceful, delicate expression of wilted rose, black cherry, plum and spice flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, gaining depth and richness, this ends with a burst of blackberry fruit, toasty oak and fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2018. 1,977 cases made. "

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
