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 ripe fruit from this vintage offers an amazing perfumed nose of pie cherries, truffles, spice, cardamom and fresh strawberry preserves. Your palate expands with flavors of concentrated cherries, pomegranates, sassafras, fennel and morel mushrooms. Rich and slightly aggressive tannins help to carry the balanced acidity that follows long into the finish. Probably the best Central Coast I've assembled in 11 vintages.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Spicy red and dark berry aromas are complemented by fresh flowers and baking spices. Smoothly blends spicy and sweet on the palate, offering black raspberry and white pepper qualities and finishing with dusty tannins that add grip. A deeper cherry note arrives on the long, sappy aftertaste. This is already delicious. "
90 Points

"A pretty, polished and elegant Pinot Noir, impeccably made and finely balanced. May lack some of the depth of Williams Selyem’s other ’07s, but it shows a complex array of cherries, cola, mocha, sandalwood and smoke. Drink "
89 Points

"This is really quite pretty with an airy red berry fruit nose that is very pinot in basic character and leads to detailed, vibrant and attractively balanced flavors that possess just enough complexity to avoid being one-dimensional. Despite being on the simple side, I like the style."
