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

Almost always the darkest Pinot Noir of the lineup, this vintage is no exception with aromas of black stone fruit, pepper, cola and wild mushrooms. Extracted flavors of berries, spice and dried herb are balanced by soft, supple tannins. Concentrated flavors of plum, raspberry, baked cherry cobbler, licorice, Asian spices, white pepper and floral notes fill your glass. This is a concentrated and lively wine with a long raspberry finish. The roundness and suppleness of this wine clings to the palate with flavors of pomegranate, wild berries, white pepper, and Morel mushrooms, but it remains lively with a refreshing citrus zesty quality.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark ruby. Pungent, highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cherry and licorice are complicated by sexy floral and Asian spice nuances. Deeply concentrated but lively, with impressive energy to its red and dark berry compote flavors. Finishes spicy and very long, with sweet rose pastille and raspberry notes clinging tenaciously. Give this wine some air if you insist on drinking it any time soon."
94 Points

"From the Cobb family’s vineyard on the far coast near Occidental, this is a powerfully concentrated young pinot noir. Its bold red fruit is rich up front, tightening up into spicy tannins at the end. Give this several years in the cellar to unfold."
