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

The 2012 Ritual Pinot Noir opens up to complex aromas of cherry and boysenberry, mixed with floral notes of violets and lavender. In the glass, the wine has deep ruby red color. The Ritual Pinot Noir is an elegant wine with density and richness. Vibrant flavors of cherry and rasberry, soft tannins, fresh acidity and a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This is gorgeous and reserved with sweet strawberry, delicate spice and cedar character. Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a clean finish. Hints of mineral too. This is truly exciting. Drink now. "

The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
