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 combination of the two distinct clones delivers a very complex flavor profile. Clone 1 provides the traditional profile of citrus and lends to the high acidity. The Sauvignon Musque clone provides a depth of fruit flavors with a range of pear, fig and pineapple. The separated lot treatments are evident in the creamy character from the barrels and the varietal freshness and bright acidity of the tank-aged wine. Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is an ideal aperitif wine and a delicious companion to food including fresh or grilled seafood, particularly oysters, crab and lobster, along with grilled or broiled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. Our inspiration for this wine comes from the unique Sonoma Coast and the opportunity to marry old and new world winemaking practices, resulting in a truly distinctive wine.

Critical Acclaim

"This sauvignon has the fatness of gooseberries and litchi nuts. Its firm edge of lemongrass will accent gingery Cantonese dishes, like steamed flounder."
