Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.7%

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

Our 2010 Sonoma Heritage Vines Zinfandel delivers an abundance of jammy flavors and spices, demonstrating the classic and distinctive characteristics of Zinfandel.

The soft, jammy flavors and textures allow this wine to be paired with a wide range of foods.

Critical Acclaim

"I actually preferred the bigger production, less expensive 2010 Zinfandel Heritage Vines (40,700 cases), which was made from a blend of 93% Zinfandel and 7% Petite Sirah, largely from the Russian River and Lodi areas, that achieved nearly 15% natural alcohol. It possesses a dark ruby/plum color as well as notes of roasted herbs, underbrush, ground pepper, meaty, briery, black cherry and black currant fruit, and abundant spice. This offering borders on being too rustic and earthy, but excellent ripeness, structure, texture and richness are all present."

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...
