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

Two Sisters is a limited production line intended to showcase the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blocks within Bill Foley's Rancho Las Hermanas Estate in the Santa Rita Hills, from vineyards named for his two daughters, Lindsay and Courtney. Pinot from Lindsay's Vineyard is classic Santa Rita Hills in character: ripe, lush, and layered, with spicy accents. Aged for seventeen months in 30% new French oak, the 2009 is concentrated with intense flavor, balanced acidity, and a bit of tannin on the back end, mark of the very dry vintage. Layers of berry preserve and candied vanilla play off notes of earthy and exotic spices on the finish from new oak aging.

Critical Acclaim

"Enormously jammy in raspberries and cherries, this is almost sweet, like spicy dessert-pastry filling. There’s good acidity and even a bite of grippy tannins, but the wine is so powerful it lacks subtlety."
