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 2008 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is truly an expression of this classic vintage. Complex and layered, with black cherry, berry, and earthy minerality, it has concentration and depth without being heavy. There's wonderful structure and texture, with soft, supple tannins and acidity for aging. With proper cellaring, everything is in place for this wine to develop and age beautifully for the next ten to fifteen years.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and fragrant, this is polished in texture, with a tight structure lighting a fire under the plum, spice and savory flavors, lingering easily on the refined finish. Best from 2012 through 2018."
90 Points

"The 2008 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills offers up a lovely nose of cedar, Asian spices, incense, cherry, and raspberry. Savory on the palate and packed with fruit, this tasty effort has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 6 years."
