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

This wine exhibits a great depth of color. Ripe black cherry, dark forest berries and asian spice with perfumed oak aromas. The palate displays a complex array of ripe small berry characters and spicy oak. The wine has excellent density and concentration and pin point balance. But it is the texture and mouthfeel of this wine that is impressive, it rich and velvety with intense Pinot Noir fruit flavors and a powerful long, but restrained finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright clear crimson-red; a fragrant bouquet of gently spicy berries leads into a beautifully balanced and proportioned palate, the dark berry fruits in a silky web of tannins. "
96 Points

"This velvety red lounges easily in the mouth as this offers cherry, mineral and pepper flavors that linger on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2012. 2,500 cases made. "
90 Points
