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

Concentrated and perfumed with lovely notes of plum, flowers, spice and Sonoma-style Zin-berries. Planted and terraced in 1937, the wine tastes of blueberry cobbler, kirsch and spice. Bold and intense, the deep fruit melds well with the fine tannins, leading into a long and multifaceted finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard, from Monte Rosso, explodes from the glass with a heady array of rich, sensual aromas and flavors. Smoke, tar, grilled herbs, licorice and blue/black fruits all come to life in this vivid, arresting Zinfandel. Firm mountain tannins provide the backdrop in a powerful, authoritative wine bursting with class and sheer pedigree. This is a fabulous showing from Larry Turley and his team. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
95 Points

"Good saturated ruby. Lively aromas of blackberry, minerals and licorice lifted by a floral nuance. Tactile, uncompromisingly dry and penetrating, conveying a strong impression of dry extract. The intense black fruit and pepper flavors outlast the wine's firm tannins. Extremely young, intriguing zinfandel in need of bottle aging."
