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

Our Russian River Valley terroir, Dijon clones and the 2007 vintage have combined to produce our most sophisticated version of this wine to date. Whereas 2006 brought substantial yields, tight clusters and big berries, 2007 saw heat during bloom producing shatter and shot berries giving us a light crop – half the amount of the previous vintage. Small berries and open clusters provided great fruit intensity. We knew 2007 would be a great year, and it came together with an ease and flow now apparent in the wines.

"This Pinot Noir shows great depth with wonderfully ripe black fruit aromas, a core of pure black cherry, and delightful hints of mushroom, spice and forest floor. On the palate, the wine is viscous and silky, weighty yet exquisitely balanced, with a wealth of luscious wild berry and plumy flavors throughout a bright, persistent finish."
- Kenneth Juhasz, winemaker

Critical Acclaim

"There's a pleasant zestiness to the wild berry and red cherry fruit flavors, with ripe, spicy elements and a bit of peppery tobacco, cedar and fresh herb notes. Full-bodied, with good intensity that persists through the finish."
