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

Color: Golden straw.

Nose: The first nose delivers notes of honey and lemon. After a swirl, honeysuckle flower and d'Anjou pear become more evident.

Flavor: A silky texture with flavors of lemon cream, white peach and pear progress into caramel and butterscotch with mineral accents.

Critical Acclaim

"Gold hue with a brass glint. Fresh peach and apple aromas with a whiff of banana peel. Flavors of peach nectar and apple deliver a zing of fresh acidity. Drying mineral impressions surface in the crisp, lengthy finish."
93 Points

"A lovely Chardonnay that’s marked by a steely minerality that braces and provides structure to the pineapple, lemondrop, honey and buttered toast flavors. Feels really elegant and creamy in the mouth. Easy to find, with nearly 13,000 cases produced, and a good price for the quality."

Used to like this a lot more with the earlier vintages. Seems to have lost something, and just not as impressive as used to be. It's still a fine wine, but lacks the pizzaz it used to have.

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...
