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

Our 2010 Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay, medium straw in color with a dynamic golden edge, offers forward fruit with minerality that is lifted and framed by sweet oak notes and spice. On the nose, look for toasted brioche, lemon curd, and baking spices with a smoky mineral note that highlights fresh green apple aromas. Creamy and concentrated flavors focus on fresh fruit: peaches, apricots, and green apples, along with orange zest. This wine has weight on the palate, rich viscosity, and a lifted, lemony finish with a gentle touch of toast.

Our Reserve Chardonnay is stunning when paired with grilled chicken, ricotta cheese-stuffed squash blossoms, poached Louisiana white shrimp, and horseradish panna cotta.
