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

This second vintage of our Dry Creek Sauvignon Blanc is quintessential Quivira, a perfect marriage of Old World and New World Sauvignon Blanc. Notes of fresh cut herbs and a bit of grassiness flow into flavors of gooseberries, limes, green apple and a mélange of tropical fruits. The bright acidity clearly shows itself both in the nose and on the palate but there is also a flinty character. Perfect as an aperitif, the Dry Creek Sauvignon Blanc also works well with light seafood dishes such as sole in a lemon butter sauce or any entrée featuring goat cheese

Critical Acclaim

"With acid sticking out everywhere, yet balanced by young and nicely expressed fruit, the wine makes us salivate for freshly shucked bivalves or other foods inclined to the lemony, weedy intensity found here in spades. It should age famously as well. "

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...
