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

Stainless steel lots bring vivid aromas of wild thyme, gooseberries, guava and nectarine, while the wood lots contribute the rich lemon curd and lemon drop that have been the hallmark of Star Lane Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate, the lots fermented in tank and stainless barrels bring poise and vibrancy to the blend and the barrel fermented lots offer a mouthfeel marked by bottomless concentration. A theoretical combination of traditionally-styled white Bordeaux and modern Sancerre, our 2008 of Star Lane Sauvignon Blanc is delicious now with richly flavored shellfish preparations but will evolve in bottle for as many as 10 years to come.

Critical Acclaim

"Greenish straw. Fresh Meyer lemon and grapefruit aromas are complemented by pungent herbs and lemongrass. Taut and juicy on entry and through the middle, then fleshes out on the back end, displaying tangy citrus and honeydew character. Offers a refreshing blend of juiciness and cut, with excellent finishing spiciness and length. This racy wine has 10.1 g/l of acidity and a pH of 3.12."

Learn About Star Lane Vineyards

Star Lane Vineyard, located at the far eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley, is both the warmest and the highest elevation vineyard in the appellation. Backing up to the lower slopes of the San Rafael Mountains, which loom high above the ranch, Star Lane unfolds itself in its own pristine valley. Traveling 22 degrees North by North East the Star Lane vineyard blocks climb from the canyon floor to the benchlands above and, ultimately to the highest mountain tops sites-each area contributing a unique element to the resulting wines.
