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 nose of this vintage is strikingly similar to the wines of the Loire, with a notable, yet mild, grassiness reminiscent of "fresh hay." A small percentage of the Musque clone adds lifted floral notes with subtle citrus and tropical fruit tones. On the palate, dried fig and a lovely lemon zest quality emerge, and the assertive acidity is nicely balanced by a textured mid-palate.

The bracing acidity of this wine makes it a good match for slightly richer foods.

Critical Acclaim

"Wonderfully juicy and intense, with ripe pear, yellow apple, melon and citrus flavors that are balanced and elegant, but terrifically focused and very refreshing."
89 Points

"Greenish gold. Highly fragrant aromas of green apple, pear, honey and dried flowers. Sappy, penetrating citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good clarity and pick up spiciness with aeration. Dusty and brisk on the nicely persistent finish, with the citrus and floral notes repeating."
89 Points

"Richness is all in this powerful sauvignon, a big blast of lime and alcohol. Acidity comes up in the end, pushed back by all the fruit. For spicy Thai chicken sausages off the grill."
88 Points

"A rich, layered white wine that shows its Sauvignon origins in the green herb and grass notes that ground richer orange and fig flavors. With crisp acidity, it’s basically dry, but finishes in a swirl of honey and spice. "

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...
