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 classic Pinot Noir is intensely aromatic with notes of dark cherries and spice. This perfectly balanced wine is fruit forward and brings out flavors of rich cherry pie filling, with a touch of cola giving it a light smoky character on the finish.

This wine drinks beautifully with meals, and is versatile enough to complement a wide range of menus. This easy-drinking red wine can complement fish, pork, chicken or beef, especially when seasoned with a touch of scented green herbs like rosemary and oregano. You can also enjoy this wine alongside pasta dishes like basil or pesto. It also pairs well with softer cheeses like Brie and Camembert.

Critical Acclaim

"Lilacs and lace grace this aromatic red. New book leather and a jolt of creaminess play with dusty, spiced Italian herbs. She'll rope you in and tie you up with toasty oak and cherry pie."
93 Points

"This shows real Sonoma Coast character in its silky texture, strong acidity and transparency of its raspberry and cherry notes, which allow for a mineral-driven taste of the soil to shine. The wine improves in the glass as it airs, picking up extra layers of complexity. Editors' Choice. 92 Points

"Medium-deep ruby color; deep, dark cherry aromas with spice and cola notes; ripe, rich, dark cherry flavors with spice and earthy notes; some oak and tannin; good structure and balance; long finish. Rich, deep Pinot with spicy flavors."

Learn About Sonoma County

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...
