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

This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a classic, cool climate Pinot Noir, with forest floor and bright cherry aromatics. On the palate, intense flavors of strawberry and cherry are framed by silky tannins. This delicate, Burgundian-style Pinot Noir offers excellent structure and complexity. The wine has a long, intricate finish, and will only develop more nuances over time.

Comparing the 2009 with the 2008 MacMurray is another helpful exercise in wine tasting. Both are excellent, but lack the character of the 2007 reserve. I really have grown to love this vineyard.
