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

Bright purple. Sexy aromas of dark berry preserves, incense and violet combine with a subtle note of smoky herbs that gains strength with air. Juicy, expansive blackberry and cherry compote flavors show very good clarity and concentration but come off as graceful. Repeats the smoke and floral notes on a long, juicy, focused finish. Very syrah and drinking well now.

Critical Acclaim

"Powerful and also elegant for New World Syrah. The nose offers fine herbs, tobacco and sly berry fruit aromas. It's rich and full in the mouth, with layering and ripe flavors of black raspberry and plum. A supercharged wine that's generous but not overdone."

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
