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 single vineyard Pinots are specific barrels or specific batches put together to be wonderful, distinctive Pinot Noirs. Most of the rest of the Pinot is blended into the Oregon. When it turns out as good as this year's Oregon Pinot, we are very happy. The grapes for this Pinot Noir came off several vineyards: Resonance, Able, Yates Conwill, Covey Ridge, Lachini and Schindler. Yes, a very nice set of sources! These are some of our favorite vineyards. We chose to blend strengths together and offer a less expensive, high quality wine. The wine is dark, aromatic and has great natural acidity. At this stage of development, most of its character is in a long, long finish - a good sign for the future of the wine! 2008 was a vintage that featured ripe grapes at somewhat lower alcohol levels. Cool, dry weather went on and on deep into October - the sort of year that produces our best Pinot Noirs. The wine should age for a very long time. At this point, bottles we open improve for weeks.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm in texture, showing earthy, meaty undertones to the bright cherry and spice flavors. This focuses nicely on the extended finish. Best from 2011 through 2018. 2,000 cases made. "
