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 Eponymous Syrah has a attractive deep purple, garnet color of the wine leads to a complexity of aromas that hint of black pepper, rosemary and a touch of smoky, oven-roasted meat dripping character that is typical of the best Syrahs. The flavors follow the palate, with added spice notes. This full- bodied wine is well-balanced, with good weight and grip that glides evenly across the palate, finishing with pleasing flavors that linger. Drink now through 2013.

A great wine for summer BBQ's of smoked and grilled meats.

Critical Acclaim

"A lush, smooth and frankly delicious Syrah that exhibits the only-in-Callifornia style. Fruit doesn't get much riper than this bottle of blueberries and chocolate. But the finely ground tannins and good acidity, it has proper structure."
