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 2011 Stemmler Carneros Pinot is light ruby in color, with aromas of strawberry, cherry, blackberry, anise, and earth. The palate shows bright cherry and berry flavors accompanied by dried herb and pastry dough. Medium to light-bodied, with a spicy finish that leaves the lingering impression of satiny tannin and fresh fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich earth, loam and truffle notes elevate the core of fresh, crisp cherry and cranberry flavors, with floral, spice and cigar box aromatics leading to a firm finish."
