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

In the heart of the Russian River Valley, the Alberigi Vineyard, sourced exclusively by Radio-Coteau and farmed organically, lies on a stretch of Vine Hill Road renowned for its Goldridge soils. Working with this special site for 10 years, the Alberigi Vineyard Pinot Noir marks a decade's worth of learning about the vineyard's nuance, terroir, and personality while balancing finesse and strength and remaining consistently feminine.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep red. Fresh red berry and floral aromas show excellent clarity and energy, with deeper cherry pit and anise qualities emerging with air. Nervy and precise, offering intense strawberry and raspberry flavors underscored by musky herb and floral pastille nuances. A touch of vanilla builds on the focused, long finish."
93 Points

"The 2010 Pinot Noir Alberigi is quite beautiful in this vintage. The firm yet fine tannins that seem to be a hallmark of this site support the expressive dark fruit nicely. Juniper, sage and mint are some of the many nuances that add complexity to the dark fruit. "
92 Points

"An attractively spicy nose features notes of dark cherry plum and violets. There middle weight flavors are both plush and round yet retain a good sense of detail and vibrancy before terminating in an agreeably dry, dusty and mouth coating finish that delivers fine depth and length."
90 Points
