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

Blended from nine impeccably farmed vineyards in five AVAs: Eola-Amity Hills, Yamhill-Carlton, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Chehalem Mountains, this precocious wine offers up a nose with a wide array of aromatics including wild plum, raspberry, currant, allspice, menthol, vanilla and a touch of anise. The palate is lush and vibrant, highlighted by flavors of fresh bing cherry, loganberry, white pepper, raspberry cordial, and a hint of rose petal with fine tannins and good length.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep, firm and concentrated, this gorgeous wine has the muscularity of Cabernet, but the plush, velvet elegance of Pinot Noir. Youthful and rich, it has deep fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry, with barrel notes of coffee, chocolate and anise. Full, smooth and supple, it is certainly among the best of the Oregon 2009s. Cellar Selection."
94 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Expressive aromas of cherry-cola, blackberry and mocha, with a floral topnote. At once fleshy and energetic, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and notes of star anise and vanilla. The cola quality comes back on the finish, which clings with very good tenacity and appealing sweetness."
