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

Medium ruby color with deep red cherry flavors and a slightly floral nose with notes of tobacco and leather. Complex with a silky texture and excellent mouth feel; good structure and a firm long finish, subtle and elegant.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-ruby color; dusty cherry, earthy aromas with floral notes; rich, complex, deep dusty red cherry flavors with earthy, floral and herb notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Subtle and a bit elegant, this Pinot's earthy cherry flavors really work well on the table."
93 Points

"A rich and delicious New World pinot, this wine's high notes of strawberry broaden out into darker flavors of cherry and oak. It feels firm and balanced, transparent despite its substantial fruit. For grilled Portobello mushrooms. "
