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

Youthful, purple hue in the glass with a complex nose of cracked pepper, dark summer berries, black cherry and chocolate, combined with visceral, earthy characters, dried wild herbs and excellent but unobtrusive supporting oak.

The initial savory/black fruit entry carries through a mouth filling, richly structured palate, the texture of soft leather. An underlying mineral acidity supports this richness, adding a certain juiciness and considerable length. Overall a wine of complexity and finesse.

Critical Acclaim

"Displaying a medium ruby color, the 2008 Moutere Pinot Noir has black cherry and red currant aromas with an undercurrent of smoky bacon, underbrush, damp loam and bark plus a little anise. Medium bodied, this is an elegant, well structured style with a good backbone of high acid and medium level of very fine tannins. It has beguiling layers of cranberry, meat and mushroom flavors, finishing with very good persistence. Consider drinking this one 2012 to 2016+. 91+ Points"
