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 fruit used in making this wine comes from a vineyard located near Gonzales in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The cool weather – driven by Monterey Bay's influence – provides the foundation for the complex nature of this distinctive wine. Deep red and purple color with classic aromas of white pepper and bacon fat alongside spicy cinnamon and dark berry fruit. Slightly sweet fruit on the palate with a pleasing, tangy burst of grapefruit rind and cloves on the complex finish. This is a traditional Syrah with lively acidity and firm tannins.

This full-bodied wine will compliment lamb with bell pepper, grass-fed or bison cheddar bacon cheeseburgers, and beef and pepper stew.

Very enjoyable wine. Deep and dark purple with a nice nose. Allow this wine to open up for a while for its beauty to shine. Will buy again.
