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

Napa Valley's 2010 vintage will be remembered as having the latest onset to harvest in several decades. We picked our first Sauvignon Blanc after Labor Day, about two weeks later than average. The growing season got off to a late start when cold, wet soils in March and April delayed budbreak. The above-average rainfall and cool temperatures persisted into May, followed by a mostly cool, foggy summer that slowed fruity maturity. But just as we started worrying that the grapes would never ripen, Mother Nature surprised us with heat spells to boost the grapes' flavors and sugar levels. Tom reports that the grapes' quality was "as good as it gets."

Our favorite pairings include fresh greens with warmed goat cheese, sautéed scallops, grilled fish or chicken, and angel hair pasta with basil pesto.
