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

#58 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The 2007 Trolley Pinot Noir is a focused and pure Sonoma Coast gem. Rich yet balanced, it layers the mouth with savory black cherry cobbler, sassafras and forest morels. The aroma offers heady notes of wild sage and dew covered California cedar. Authenticity in a bottle.

Critical Acclaim

"Focused on a core of black cherry and blackberry fruit that's medium- to full-bodied, complex and spicy. Smooth-textured, with a long finish. Drink now through 2014. 733 cases made."
94 Points

"Bright red. Sexy aromas of raspberry, cherry compote, anise and minerals. Sweet cherry and berry flavors are complicated by succulent herbs and candied flowers, which gain strength with air. Becomes sweeter and spicier on the finish, with the cherry and floral notes echoing. This carries 14.5% alcohol but doesn't come off as heavy. "

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...
