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

Ellenbach Vineyard Pinot Noir is a deep, vibrant ruby in the glass, verging on purple. It displays a beguiling complex nose of black cherry, raspberry, ripe cranberry, anise, rose petal, lavender, and cinnamon. On the palate, dark plum and blackberry combine beautifully with the anise that carries through from the nose. Bright acidity keeps these flavors vibrant, and allows this wine to be dark without being full-bodied. A hint of cranberry, fern and briar on the finish leave no doubt that this is classic Pinot Noir.

Critical Acclaim

"Acidity makes the mouth water, tannins provide a firm framework, oak is perfectly integrated, and the depth of fruit is impressive. Shows flavors of cherry tart, raspberry Newton, cola, buttered cinnamon toast and vanilla that are magnificent and decadent. Elegant and classy."
