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

On the nose, this wine displays aromas of raspberry and blueberry, earth and a floral note. The entry shows bright berry fruit, with good weight and a refined structure.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid ruby-red. Pungent aromas of black raspberry, dried flowers, spicecake and vanilla. Juicy, focused and appealingly sweet, with energetic red and dark berry flavors and strong mineral snap on the back half. A spicy note lingers on the very long, floral, dark berry-accented finish. Drink this sexy wine before the 2008."
91 Points

"The 2009 Pinot Noir Justice Vineyard (owned by Bethel Heights) was made with 27% whole clusters. More expressive aromatically than the Willamette Valley cuvee, it is a savory, easy-going, nicely proportioned Pinot with good volume and length. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. "

One of the most delicious, mouth-filling Pinot Noirs on the market at an affordable price. Fruit forward with some vanilla, this wine complements all kinds of foods and is also a pleasure to drink without food. Served by the glass at much inflated prices in some of the finest restaurants in the Napa Valley.
