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

Spanish for "fog," la neblina rolls in from the Pacific Ocean to blanket and cool the coastal Pinot Noir vineyards of western Sonoma County. Organically grown grapes in prized Goldridge soil were lovingly fermented into the La Neblina Pinot Noir.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby. Sexy, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry and minerals. Juicy, penetrating and precise, with a silky texture and lovely purity to its red fruit and floral pastille flavors. Finishes with admirable length and focus and lingering notes of smoky minerals and spicecake. Offers a compelling combination of power and finesse and has the depth to age."
92 Points

"A restrained, airy and ripe nose of plum, black cherry and spice is followed by notably rich, supple, round and mouth coating medium weight flavors that also possess a velvety mouth feel on the slightly more complex, dusty and lingering finish. About the only nit here is a touch of backend warmth but it's not really enough to materially detract from the overall sense of balance."
91 Points

"The 2009 Pinot Noir La Neblina is a delicious entry-level wine. Sweet dark cherries, flowers, hard candies and savory herbs all jump from the glass. The aromas and flavors all have superb intensity. A relatively easygoing wine, the 2009 La Neblina has lovely balance and plenty of overall harmony."
