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

Aromas of sour cherry and cranberry are touched up with allspice, red rose petal and notes of tea leading to soft, supple tannins and crisp acidity, showcasing bright red fruits led by raspberry and cherry with a hint of cloves and herbal tea.

One of the smallest appellations on the Sonoma coast, Green Valley of Russian River Valley has a cool climate, a result of the fog that comes from the Pacific Ocean each evening. The cooler weather and well-drained Goldridge soils create an idyllic climate for growing Pinot Noir, yielding complex, elegant wines with well-balanced acidity. Pinot Noir achieves greatness here.

Critical Acclaim

"This bears a silky texture that's light and pleasant on the palate, but there’s nothing light about the flavors. It offers blasts of ripe, pure raspberry, cherry and Dr. Pepper, with lots of exotic spice."
93 Points

"Fresh and snappy, offering notes of vibrant black cherry, raspberry, plum, black tea and spice, with a subtle touch of spice and cedar. Ends with firm, ripe tannins."
91 Points
