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 2009 vintage produced one of our darkest and most extracted expressions of Chenoweth Ranch Pinot Noir to date. While signature notes of strawberry and cherry are still on display, there is a depth and density to this wine that hints at its exceptional ageability, with mouthcoating layers of dark chocolate, smoke and cedar complemented by lovely elements of violet and lavender.

Critical Acclaim

"Very impressive, pure and firm, this is marked by a density of flavor, with tight flavors of dark blackberry, cedar, spice and mineral. Full-bodied, deep and persistent on the finish. Needs time."
93 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Musky, soil-driven aromas of black raspberry, black tea and flowers. Concentrated, juicy and penetrating, conveying a high-pH mouth feel but good energy and firm underlying structure. The wine's floral element builds with aeration. Finishes with firm tannic spine and very good juicy persistence. Made from Dijon clones that yielded less than 1.5 tons per acre in 2009, according to winemaker Hall. This should age nicely."
