Light & Fruity

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.6%

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 Routestock Pinot Noir has a compelling nose of lavender, hibiscus, black tea, caramel and hard candy. The mouth is bright and structured with hints of cinnamon stick, cranberry and chai spice finishing with soft, velvety tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"An affordable classic from multiple sources, this cool-vintage red has a bright cherry scent marked by a sanguine bottom note. The flavors are savory, the mid-palate generous and marked by a bergamot lift to the finish.

Nice wine at a fair price. Like the balance between the bright cherry fruit and spicy, cola flavors. Very easy to drink if not all that complex.

This is a lovely lower-priced Oregon Pinot that works for everyday dinners. It has enough substance to differentiate from the entry-level Pinots at only a 10-20% premium.
