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

To craft our wonderfully balanced Rainstorm Pinot Noir, we take advantage of Oregon's diverse landscape by selecting grapes from our vineyards in the Willamette and Umpqua Valleys. With its cool, mild climate, the Willamette Valley of northern Oregon produces Pinot Noirs with an earthy, elegant style and complex flavors and subtlety. The hotter and drier climate in southern Oregon's Umpqua Valley region produces Pinot Noirs bursting with brilliant, ripe, rich fruit flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and tangy, with a supple texture to the tannins and a gentle thrust to the red berry and mineral flavors, lingering easily and expressively."
