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

Saturated garnet; ripe plum and red cherry fruits, compote, exotic spice; Intense berry fruit on entry, sensuous, layered, round tannins, sweet core fruit, juicy acid, long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch is another striking wine. It boasts fabulous depth yet at the same time maintains remarkable aromatic freshness and nuance. Dark cherries, flowers, mint and licorice flesh out on a beautifully articulated finish laced with persistent saline notes. This slightly cooler site was somewhat protected from the severe heat. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."
93 Points

"Muscular but focused, offering berry pie and dill aromas and flavors that are deep and rich, yet with an appealing core of earthy tannins and bright acidity, plus flavors of raspberry and smoky cracked pepper."

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...
