Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

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: 14.5%

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 2012 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir exhibits the lush creamy textures and dark red fruit flavors that fans have enjoyed in previous vintages. The warm 2012 growing season resulted in complex flavor development at optimal tannin levels. We blended a small percentage of Swan clone to our traditional blend of clones 115 and 777. The resulting wine is nicely balanced with seductive aromas of dark cherry, black tea, and earthy forest floor. Textures are creamy and silky with an extra level of elegance and finesse.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby color; deep, complex, spicy aromas with some cherry and clove notes; deep, full stewed cherry flavors with cinnamon, clove and earthy notes; mouthfilling texture; great structure and balance; long finish. Ripe, forward and very complex Pinot that shows well now but really needs time to develop."
96 Points

"The 2012 Pinot Noir Sangiacomo Vineyard was made from Dijon clones 115 and 777 as well as the Pommard and Joseph Swan clones. The bouquet offers sweet notes of black cherries, wild strawberries and plums. Pure and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin and a sumptuous mouthfeel, this round, generous beauty offers both a hedonistically and intellectually satisfying perspective. Enjoy it over the next 5-8 years. "

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
