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 2007 Terra d'Oro SHR Field Blend Zinfandel presents a beautiful deep, dark color in the glass. With classic Amador spice notes, the nose is rich with ripe dark fruit with hints of clove, warm vanilla, and violet perfume. Bold and rich flavors fill the mouth with ripe wild berries and mocha; another great example of the complexity and unique flavors and aromas that can only come from field blending.

The long and warm finish makes this wine a perfect companion to braised lamb shank with mushrooms or roasted quail with polenta.

Blend: 80% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, 7% Barbera

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of 80% Zin, 13$ Petite Sirah and 7% Barbera, this is one of the most superbly textured wines I have tasted. The nose is ripe and incredibly concentrated with blueberries, raisins and cherry-tinged cocoa powder; the palate's silky entry is tongue-coating bliss. Chalky and juicy at the same time."

Very earthy and has an odd spice to it (which I liked). Something about it, reminds me of yummy, stinking, sharp flavored cheese. I really enjoyed this one. It's flavor is quite unique.
