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

From its beautiful bright lemon color to its inviting aromas of citrus fruit, lemon blossom, ginger, white nectarine, wet stone and spice, this is a vibrant and refreshing wine. On the palate, perfectly balanced oak and alcohol support lovely notes of green pear and apple, white flowers and citrus oil.

Critical Acclaim

"Made in the drier, leaner, earthier and more Chablisian style that's increasingly popular, this Chardonnay is a natural for food pairings, such as shellfish. It's a minerally wine, with elegant citrus, kiwi and pear flavors and a streamlined complexity."

Style: Rich & Creamy
A wonderful chard made in the Burgundian style. Absolutely smooth and creamy in texture with balanced acidity and balanced oak. Nose hints of jasmine, citrus topical fruit and lush vanilla. Balanced citrusy components and vanilla oak in an absolutely silky finish.

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...
