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

Our 2009 is pale straw in color. The wine is youthful in both the nose and mouth, and a few months in bottle have served it well, allowing its character to evolve. Intriguing and complex aromas offer ginger, lime peel, lemongrass, and passion fruit. Minerality reigns in the fruit character further adding structure to the wine. Bone dry and with appropriate acidity, it offers great balance of all its components. We are confident the wine will evoke our favorite wine description, "delicious."

Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc ranks up there with two of my other favorite vintages-2004 and 2007. The embodiment of refreshing, it is a friendly wine that will satisfy a spectrum of Sauvignon Blanc lovers.

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Critical Acclaim

"A brilliant Sauvignon Blanc, with racy acidity and a rich, creamy texture. Shows lemongrass, peach, melon and exotic tropical fruit flavors, and really gets those tastebuds whistling. Shows a complexity rare in this variety."
