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

The wine is pale straw gold in color, with honey-suckle and jasmine aromas. Citrus flavors; kefir lime and tangerine, dominate the taste profile while the mouth feel is elegant and full, with a ripe pear and a touch of vanilla caramel from the oak. The finish is soft and smooth, very dry, but leaves lingering lush primary fruit flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"A number of vineyards contribute to this wine, including Sangiacomo at the base of Sonoma Mountain and Saralee’s in the Russian River Valley. The various sites knit together well, creating an open and fragrant chardonnay redolent of wildflower honey and chanterelle mushrooms. It’s a gentle and harmonious wine that would show well paired with rabbit in a cream sauce.

Best Buy"
92 Points

"So bright and zingy in acidity, and so ripe in tangerine, mango, lime fruit and honeysuckle, that you hardly notice the oak influence. Yet, it’s there in the form of buttered toast. The result is a big, powerful Chardonnay, clean and vibrant, for drinking now with dramatic shellfish and pork dishes.

Style: Rich & Creamy
Let me start by explaining that, while I like the buttery taste of an oaked Chardonnay, I don't like the oak taste. I have tried unoaked Chardonnays, but they are too acidic. For me, this ended up being the best Chardonnay. It has enough of the buttery taste but none of the oak taste. It's a smooth, light drink that's perfect to me. I would like to classify it as light and creamy, but that's not a choice.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
