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 2011 Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has a red rose petal to ruby color. It has a nose of potpourri, strawberry jam, conifer bark, wild chanterelles and black truffle with hints of cinnamon, ginger and chocolate. On the palate, the wine is fruit-sweet and very full-bodied with flavors of ripe red berries and malt. It finishes with bright acidity and medium grained tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a fresh, young Pinot Noir, with a silky texture and ripe flavors of raspberries and cola. It’s dry and deliciously complex, a fine example of a coastal Pinot, and should hold and develop over the next six years."
